NO HEALTH WITHOUT MENTAL HEALTH
A WPA INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS
 
The World Psychiatric Association (WPA) is the largest association active in the mental health field worldwide, with 134 Member Societies (national psychiatric societies), representing more than 200,000 psychiatrists, and 65 Scientific Sections.
 
In the WPA Action Plan 2008-2011, one of the objectives is to foster the collaboration between psychiatry and other medical specialties, in all regions of the world, in exploring and addressing the multiple interrelationships between mental disorders and physical diseases.
 
As one of the activities pursuing this objective, the WPA will fund an innovative international Project involving research centres in psychiatry and at least one other medical specialty, investigating the epidemiology, pathogenesis, social implications, cultural variation and/or management of the comorbidity between one or more mental disorders an done or more physical diseases.
 
Proposals will have to include a description of the Project (max 1200 words), a list of the participating centres, a timetable, a detailed budget, and a short curriculum vitae of the proposed leaders of the Project (a lead psychiatrist and a lead specialist of another medical branch).
 
Proposals should be sent by e-mail to the WPA Secretariat ([email protected]) by June, 2010
