Women’s Mental Health Roundtable
ACHA was represented at the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Women’s Mental Health Roundtable and Leadership Summit that took place December 10-11, 2007, in Washington, D.C. The goal of this roundtable was to bring together leaders of national organizations concerned with the health, mental health, and well-being of women to create and advance an agenda to improve women’s mental health through strategic and collaborative action. ACHA was represented by Alan J. Barnes, MDCM (University of Florida).

The following documents include a presentation given by the director of APA Minority and National Affairs, a list of participants, a summary of the roundtable, and an article covering the event from Psychiatric News.
