We’ll also share practical advice on starting and growing your professional practice to thrive amidst these changes.
As you know, mental health takes a village, and clinical practice doesn’t exist in a vacuum. That’s why we’ll bring panelists together to discuss the broader issues that interact with mental health, from Ai and software applications to cultural policy shifts transforming how we practice.

The term "psychiatry" is derived from the ancient Greek words psyche, meaning "mind" or "soul," and iatreia, signifying "healing." Interestingly, in Greek, the word for butterfly is also "psyche," evoking a symbolic journey of transformation and renewal.
This transformative journey is embodied by the Greek goddess Psyche. Known for her unparalleled beauty and resilience, Psyche started as a mortal, overcame a series of formidable tasks, and ultimately achieved immortality and goddess status, wedding Eros, the god of desire. This trajectory mirrors the transformation of a butterfly, and similarly, the journey many face when navigating mental illness—a challenging period of withdrawal and depression, followed by emergence with renewed potential for change and growth.
"Psychiatry Tomorrow," is a podcast and platform where we navigate the challenges and opportunities of this transformative journey in the field of mental health. The cover art, featuring a statue of Psyche's head, opening to reveal a flurry of butterflies, symbolizes the breaking away from entrenched ways of thinking and the birth of new perspectives.
