World Psychiatric Association

Section on Rural Mental Health

Dr Anshuman Pant is a member of the College and Secretary of the World Psychiatric Association's (WPA) Section on Rural Mental Health.  Dr Pant is keen to let members and fellows of the College know that, if they are interested, they can join this Section of the WPA (there is no charge) as the College currently does not have a Faculty or Special Interest Group that focusses on this aspect of Mental Health. 

If you would like some more information, or would like to become a member of this Section of the WPA, please email sconway@rcpsych.ac.uk in the first instance.
