This article deals with the organisation and evaluation of a pilot series of seminars at the Institute of Psychiatry on the relevance of social anthropology to psychiatry. Despite increasing interest in the relationship of culture to psychiatry, trainees have few opportunities to learn about anthropological issues in psychiatric theory, practice and research. The present authors, all with higher degrees in social anthropology, believe that this is one of the first seminar series of its kind in the country specifically for mental health trainees. Some further possibilities for developing and applying this teaching are also considered.
