Workshops and Meetings at World and Regional level enable participants (psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists, health economists, public health researchers, statisticians from universities, government agencies, hospital research units) to come together and discuss research data and seek ways to use this information in decision making. Training and Educational Courses are developed by distinguished authorities in the field.
The Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics, a distinguished peer reviewed international journal, has been designated as the official journal of the Section on Mental Health Economics.
