International Conference on Traditional Medicines, Interculturality and Mental Health coordinated by the Takiwasi Centre.
The conference will take place in the city of Tarapoto, in the Peruvian Upper Amazon from 7 to 10 June 2009.

Various members (fellows) of the International ASHOKA Foundation who work in the field of American Traditional Medicine (TM) and more specifically in the treatment of addictions believe that it is necessary to demonstrate and promote the valuable contribution of TM in providing solutions to the pressing and growing contemporary problems in mental health.

TM practitioners, indigenous representatives, participants in projects that integrate TM with conventional medicine, academics, government representatives and international organizations are invited to attend.
