      Anna Fiskin is a psychiatrist with training in medical anthropology who specializes in cultural psychiatry and global mental health. She is a currently a Clinical Instructor and Public Psychiatry Fellow at UCSF with a placement at Chinatown North Beach Mental Health Services, where she works with a diverse patient population from China, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. She is also the faculty lead in Cultural Psychiatry for UCSF Psychiatry HEAL Fellowship in Global Mental Health.

      Her research focuses on improving access to mental healthcare in Nepal, in particular in understanding acceptability and feasibility of training primary care workers and community members to provide mental healthcare. She worked as a collaborator with Programme for Improving Mental Healthcare and Transcultural Psychosocial Organization and analyzed interviews and focus groups with key stakeholders in Nepal which resulted in a report that is being used to develop a mental health plan for Nepal. She is interested in how primary care doctors and mental health workers can be engaged to provide mental health care for diverse populations in the United States, and is working on a quality improvement project in this area at her clinic.

      Anna really enjoys teaching. She was the Educational Chief Resident at Yale Psychiatric Hospital, where she organized chief rounds and lectures. She was also the co-facilitator for the Cultural Psychiatry Curriculum for PGY2 residents at Yale Department of Psychiatry. For the past two years, she has taught a class on Culturally Grounded Approaches to Psychological Disaster Interventions for the MA Program in International Disaster Psychology at University of Denver.
