PsiAN: Our Mission

PsiAN aims to organize, formulate initiatives and collectively advocate for mental health policy that is based on the complexity of the individual and not simply on the identification of discrete symptoms.

We advocate for teaching, research, policy and practice in which psychotherapeutic depth of understanding of the uniqueness of individual suffering, the complex psychotherapeutic process of individual growth and change, and the essential role of the psychotherapeutic relationship are valued as key elements of successful treatment.
