The first India Mental Health Conference will take place at St Antony’s College, Oxford on Wednesday 30 & Thursday 31 October 2019. Bringing together experts from these three areas: Clinical, Policy and Social/Historical. Within these broad topics the conference will explore severe and non-severe mental illness, the guidelines and protocol for these illnesses and examples of care models, as well as India’s current policies for care and delivery and also examining studies on care for individual and populations both historically and currently.
As part of our effort to disseminate research on delivery of mental healthcare in India, we are commissioning a supplement in the Journal of Public Health (academic.oup.com/jpubhealth), which publishes manuscripts on public health research and practice. Two manuscripts from this supplement are open to competitive submissions from conference attendees – one manuscript focused on population health aspects and one on anthropological/historical aspects of mental healthcare in India. If you want to submit any appropriate work undertaken in this area to be considered for possible inclusion in the supplement please submit it via www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FWV9P2K by 5pm GMT on Oct 18, 2019. The winners will be announced on Oct 31st.
