I recommend attending an open lecture about Mental Health Care in Japan conducted by Dr. Yuko Kawanishi and her work as a sociologist has focused on cross-cultural mental health issues. She is also a New York State-licensed Master Social Worker, specializing in mental health and psychotherapy. She holds a PhD. in Sociology from UCLA and a Masters in Social Work (specializing in clinical mental health) from the City University of New York, Hunter College and is the author of 3 books and numerous articles on responses to mental illness, clinical depression, and US-Japan comparative perspectives on issues of mental health.
