The Publication

South African Psychiatry is a publication that aims to connect  the discipline of Psychiatry nationally through providing a hub  for exchanging news, views and reports on activities – from both the public and private clinical sectors as well as the academic centres and institutions serving the discipline.

The publication seeks to showcase  and provide a platform  for communicating  what it is that psychiatrists do and are involved with. However, contributions are not confined to psychiatrists and certainly those from the broader community of mental health professionals are welcome.
In addition, it must be acknowledged that industry’s role in supporting the discipline should not go undocumented.
South African Psychiatry will promote
 greater cohesiveness  through providing a comprehensive  view of the discipline that is communicated nationally.

A cohesive  discipline is a strong  discipline and South African Psychiatry intends to contribute.
