2023 Conference: Practices that Harm | Practices That Heal
For our 2023 conference, we invite you to draw broadly from your research, scholarship, clinical practices, and personal histories to tell your story and to present your research or scholarship on practices that heal.
The Society for the Study of Psychiatry and Culture (SSPC) is a nonprofit, interdisciplinary organization devoted to furthering research, clinical care and education in cultural aspects of mental health and illness. We aim to promote cultural psychiatry in North American professional groups and to collaborate with national and international organizations in the development of policy and practice. Primarily rooted in North America, we provide an interface for domestic and international interests of cultural psychiatry and mental health.
