Current Meeting

American Society of Hispanic Psychiatry



The American Society of Hispanic Psychiatry is accepting applications for the 2022 Don Quixote Award  to be presented during our annual meeting in  New Orleans, Louisiana May 21, 2022

ASHP fosters multidisciplinary collaborations in mental health treatment with a particular focus on Latino Populations. Members are psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and other mental health workers.


Don Quixote has been thought as a prototype of idealism, goodwill, magnanimity and justice. For these reasons Don Quixote deserves to be celebrated and assigning its name to a prime award conferred by the American Society of Hispanic Psychiatrists appears not only desirable but just, and representative of the highest aspirations and motivations of our society.
