AMHIG’s inaugural conference was held on December 2, 2014 at American University in Washington, D.C. This conference was sponsored by theĀ Society for Medical Anthropology, the American Anthropological Association, and the American University Department of Anthropology.

The conference theme was “Current Issues and Future Directions in the Anthropology of Mental Health,” and this inaugural meeting of AMHIG members was very successful. Over seventy people registered, and fifty-eight participants attended and actively participated in five insightful, thought-provoking roundtable sessions.
