The resource group consisted of seven members of GCMHP, two professors from Harvard Medical School, a professor from the Free University of Berlin, a psychiatrist from Pakistan who is the Secretary of the World Psychiatry Association, a representative of the International Medical Corps in Japan, and Dr. Van Eenwyk.
