5th World Congress of Cultural Psychiatry, New York, 2018: Achieving Global Mental Health Equity-call for scientific papers

The 5th World Congress of Cultural Psychiatry will be held at Columbia University in New York City on October 10-13, 2018. This World Congress is sponsored by the World Association of Cultural Psychiatry (WACP), Columbia University, New York Institute of Technology – College of Osteopathic Medicine, and several partner organizations. 

 With the theme Achieving Global Mental Health Equity: Making Cultural Psychiatry Count, this multi-disciplinary conference will bring together hundreds of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and others in mental health, anthropology, and social scientists from around the world. At a time of increasing awareness about the unjust mental health disparities in developing and developed countries, researchers, practitioners, and advocates will come together to exchange experiences on how best to implement culture-focused interventions and policies to overcome health and healthcare disparities and promote global mental health equity in access, engagement, and quality of care for diverse populations.

Below are the Call for Papers and links to the World Congress website, and the Abstract submission and registration pages.
