Are you passionate about global mental health and would like to gain new insight through a unique African perspective? Have you read about the Rwandan genocide and would like to learn more about the country’s history as well as its unique success with reconciliation and nation building?
The 2018 theme of our annual Global Mental Health Conference & Summer School is “Physical Health and Mental Health: Towards an Integrated Approach”. Participants have the opportunity to hear from Rwandan and international scholars, and to exchange their knowledge with a multicultural group of participants from Rwanda and abroad.
Co-hosted by the Center for Mental Health (CMH) at the University of Rwanda, the Institute of Health & Wellbeing (IHW) at the University of Glasgow and GEI, this week-long program is available to students and professionals in the various mental health disciplines and related subjects. Continuing Professional Development credits are available.
