Dear Friend of SSPC:

The Society for the Study of Psychiatry and Culture invites you to become a corporate sponsor of our organization. SSPC is a not for profit North American association devoted to furthering research, clinical care, and education in cultural aspects of mental health and illness. The Society has a diverse international membership and encourages participation of professionals and students from psychiatry, nursing, psychology and the social sciences who are at various stages of practice, research or training. SSPC focuses attention on the importance of cultural factors in psychiatric care, education, and research through its group and individual efforts.

The Goals of SSPC Are:

  • To identify and meet the professional needs of our members
  • To promote quality treatment and prevention of mental illness globally as well as locally
  • To develop and implement culturally competent ways to combat the stigma of mental illness in all societies
  • To educate people with mental illness, their caregivers and providers, and the general population about mental health and mental illness in diverse cultural communities
