A Media Consultant for the WPA

Considering the need to promote the voice of the WPA, for the benefit of the people with mental health problems and mental health professionals across the world, WPA has taken an innovative action. The Association has recently engaged a health communications consultant to highlight to the international media news relating to WPA activities and to communicate the organization’s perspective on topical issues in mental health.

Emma Ross, a former medical correspondent for the Associated Press and news team leader at the World Health Organization, will act as media liaison for the WPA. In addition to highlighting news emerging from the World Psychiatry journal, WPA scientific congresses and other projects, she will be developing a database that will offer a WPA resource to journalists seeking expert sources on a variety of mental health topics.
