Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Psychiatry is on the cusp of major changes. It is time to look at where the specialty has been, where it is now, and to try to imagine its future. What will psychiatrists do, and how will this be delivered and financed? How will psychiatry’s relationship with society change? How must mental health laws adapt? Can psychiatry go digital? And how will psychiatrists of the future be trained?
The World Psychiatric Association and The Lancet Psychiatry have commissioned a team of mental health professionals, researchers, and service users to produce this new Commission on the Future of Psychiatry. It is intended to stimulate thought, debate, and the change necessary for psychiatry to fulfil its potential as an innovative, effective, and inclusive medical specialty in the 21st century.
