Your Gift Helps

MDs and PhDs who are starting their careers are vital to the future of our organization and to the field of Cultural Psychiatry. We appreciate that Annual Meeting registration fees prevent many trainees and early career professionals from attending the Annual Meeting.

Using the President’s Fund, we will be able to reduce the registration fees for these vital attendees. We also will be able to subsidize some of the expenses that arise every year when we invite special speakers, often from low income countries.

Our Board of Directors has generously promised 100% participation to this fund. We hope you will join them in this worthy cause. Your contribution today will help us lower the cost for trainees and early-career professionals to attend the Annual Meeting.

A Word from Our Board

As SSPC moves into the global mental health arena, it is increasingly important to hear from experts around the world, and especially from less affluent countries. Your generous contribution to the President’s Fund will make it possible to invite worthy speakers who might otherwise not be able to attend our meetings.
