It is the hope of the interest group that a robust multidisciplinary approach to research, training and service development in the area of forensic mental health within Africa will evolve from the various opportunities of interaction that the group will provide.
To create a platform for research, training, support and information sharing geared towards the development of forensic mental health services in Africa through partnership and collaboration within an international network of forensic mental health specialists.
The Africa Interest Group is open to any member of IAFMHS. There is no additional membership fee. Group members will include psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and administrators who have interest in forensic mental health services in Africa. Legal practitioners, correctional officers and other government officials who interface with mentally ill offenders will also find the group of immense benefit.
