The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

About us


Transcultural SIG Executive Committee

TSIG supports policy and practise to improve the care of socially excluded and marginalised groups where culture is influential in the expression and management of mental distress.

We also need to continue work in teaching, training and curriculum development to ensure that cultural competency remains an essential component in the assessment of the clinical competencies of all psychiatrists.
