Fahimeh Mianji

Fahimeh Mianji is a doctoral candidate in Social and Transcultural Psychiatry at McGill. Prior to her immigration to Canada through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, she obtained her Ph.D. in Psychology in Iran. To further develop her interest in global mental health research, intervention, and policy, Fahimeh completed a Doctoral Fellowship in Global Health Research Capacity Strengthening (a CIHR-funded Training Grant) and a research fellowship in Health and Social Policy at the McGill Institute for Health and Social Policy (IHSP). She has also received clinical training at the Cultural Consultation Service of the Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal on providing comprehensive and culturally competent clinical assessment and treatment of psychiatric patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. Fahimeh’s global mental health research focuses on two areas: the globalization of American psychiatry and immigrants’ and refugees’ mental health. Studying the globalization of American psychiatry, she conducted her doctoral research in Iran to explain the professional, sociocultural, and political uses of bipolar spectrum diagnosis in the country.
Pursuing her clinical and research interest in immigrants’ and refugees’ mental health care, she is the co-investigator of a two-year research project on “Mental Health Care for Linguistic Minorities: Improving Access and Quality of Care for Farsi-speaking Newcomers in Quebec,” funded by the McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project for the Health Care Access for Linguistic Minorities Network (HCALM Network).
