The Section of Preventive Psychiatry brings together a global network of psychiatrists and psychiatry trainees undertaking research, teaching/ learning, clinical practice, and a diverse range of actions framed by a mental health promotion and preventive approach.
The Section’s main goal is to contribute to the development of strong, thriving, inclusive, and diverse communities, taking a multi-factorial, multi-level approach to mental health. It aims to prevent the occurrence and reduce the incidence and impact of mental health disorders worldwide and advance mental health promotion oriented and evidence-based programs and practices. Through a broad scope of action, the Section promotes discussion, research, teaching, practice, action, and dissemination of evidence-based information focused on preventing mental disorders and increasing people’s control over the elements that determine their mental health and wellbeing.
