National Women's Month

South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August as a tribute to the thousands of women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women.

We proudly took part in the Artscape Women/ Humanity Arts Festival, where our new volunteer Elsa Araya handed out information to community workers and women from all walks of life.

Maternal mental health in Uganda

The PMHP contributed to this open access paper lead by the Uganda team of PRIME. It highlights the acceptability and relevance of perinatal mental health care in rural Uganda. 

The results of this study have implications for mental health service planning and the development of integrated maternal mental health care in similar rural settings in low and middle income countries.

“Secret History” to Germany

We were invited to adapt our "Secret History" and empathic skills training methods to the German setting as part of the Pan University Network for Global Health initiative. In collaboration with the University of Freiburg, Germany (Department of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy) and the University of Pennsylvania (USA), a cultural adaptation was developed, piloted with trainers and will be evaluated with a view to adapting and using the method in several other countries.
