ACTIVITIES

To help us achieve our vision of creating a community for Christian psychiatrists, we encourage you to get involved with the activities we offer to members of the Psychiatry Section.

  • Current Issues Blog - Join the conversation with us as we discuss the latest current issues impacting Christian psychiatrists.
  • Newsletters 
  • Mentoring: Sharing a Journey - Do you have questions regarding how to successfully practice Christian psychiatry? Have you ever needed advice from someone who knows you personally and professionally? Do you want to know that there is someone out there you can call when you need to make that difficult decision? Our members are both young and seasoned psychiatrists who are willing to invest in each other, in young doctors considering psychiatry and psychiatrists starting their practices. We consider it a privilege to dig deep and help prepare a resident for some of the spiritual challenges and frustrations and disappointments they will face. Contact us to find out how you can be involved. 
  • Meetings and conferences - Our main event every year are the annual meetings and seminars we hold in conjunction with the American Psychiatry Association's Annual Meeting. In addition, we also hold local meetings and activities.
  • Career guidance and coaching to healthcare professionals, residents and students - We interface in many ways with CMDA's Life & Executive Coaching, a ministry that offers a personalized resource to support and encourage Christian healthcare professionals. You may wish to utilize this resource personally, while coaches may need to refer clients to mental health professionals on occasion. You may also want to refer patients to a professional coach for support and encouragement. For more information, visit www.cmda.org/coaching.
  • Domestic and international healthcare mission trip opportunities - CMDA is dedicated to both domestic and international missions. Through our various mission outreaches, we provide opportunities for healthcare professionals to use their God-given skills to meet the needs of others around the world and share the gospel. While psychiatry resources are often not specifically listed as needed resources, there is a tremendouse need for psychiatrists on most of our mission trips.  For more information, visit www.cmda.org/missions.
