The mission of the Global Mental Health Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is to provide educational and research opportunities for medical students, residents, and faculty interested in mental health in international settings.

The educational component of the program for residents includes didactic lectures during the first year and opportunities for residents to work in international settings or locally with immigrant and refugee populations.  A newly developed global mental health track provides additional time, support, and mentoring for residents interested in a deeper engagement in the field of global mental health. 

The Department’s global mental health interest group meets monthly and is open to residents and faculty.  Each year, the department invites a national leader in global mental health to give grand rounds and to consult with faculty and residents.
