Mario Braakman, psychiatrist and ethnologist
My main job is director of the Psychiatric Residency programme of Pro Persona, Mental Health. In addition to this I'm coordinating the ethnic diversity policy and in my clinical work I take care of exclusively non-western patients.
Besides this I work for EthnoPsych Consultancy in which I take care of several projects and like to spread my knowledge about ethnicity and mental health in courses and lectures.
