Building our identity of psychiatry in the past, present and future South Africa

25 Apr 2013

This issue of the South African Journal of Psychiatry celebrates the 60th anniversary of the South African Society of Psychiatrists (SASOP) and its 17th national congress. It reflects on the past of psychiatry, ponders on what psychiatry has become, and looks ahead, particularly in South Africa. Doing so says something of the identity of psychiatry in South Africa, which is crucially about people – our people.
