SSPC depends on the minimal dues we charge to help keep the organization going. Annual meeting registration does not cover our office expenses, but without a secretary to process the paper work we could not have an organization. Please pay your membership if you have not yet done so.
The SSPC gives two awards to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of cultural psychiatry.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a person who has made “outstanding and enduring contributions to the field of cultural psychiatry.”
The Creative Scholarship Award is presented to a person who has made a “significant creative contribution to the field of cultural psychiatry.”
We would like to request nominations from all of you for this year’s recipients.
Please submit your nominations for consideration by completing the Award Nominations form, which can be downloaded from our website http://www.psychiatryandculture.org and submitting it to Michael Hollifield at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 15, 2010.
