Each year the Society presents two important awards for significant achievements by individuals who conduct advanced work in the field of cultural psychiatry. These are:

  • The Lifetime Achievement Award: This is to be presented annually to a person who has made outstanding and enduring contributions to the field of cultural psychiatry, and is the highest honor bestowed by the Society.
  • The Creative Scholarship Award: This is to be presented annually to a person who has made a recent significant creative contribution to the field of cultural psychiatry.

Awardees receive a plaque with certificate of award at the SSPC annual meeting.

Please take time to seriously consider nominees for each of these prestigious awards. Links to the nominations forms can be found here: Lifetime Achievement Award and Creative Scholarship Award and you can download and save from there. Instructions for sending the nominations are on the nomination forms.

Please note that the deadline for the nominations is March 31, 2014. Nominations received after this date will not be considered.

Thank you in advance for your time and efforts toward recognizing these important people in the field of cultural psychiatry!
