Every year the VTPU runs monthly 1-hour seminars on topics related to transcultural mental health. The seminars are free and open to any health and mental health practitioners and members of allied professions, e.g. education or welfare. Speakers in the seminar programs are practitioners with expertise in a particular field and come from a wide range of backgrounds. The speaker’s presentation is followed by general discussion.
The second half of the two-hour program is devoted to a Transcultural Clinical Case Presentation by a St Vincent's Hospital psychiatric registrar as part of his/her training. The audience is encouraged to ask questions and offer advice or suggestions concerning the management of the case.
Seminars are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (see dates below). There will be a reminder sent to all on our mailing list up to one month prior. To register click on the date.
