Lauren Ban, PhD, is currently a Senior Research Fellow with the Centre for International Mental Health in Melbourne, Australia. She has recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Transcultural Psychiatry at the Jewish General Hospital/McGill University and Cultural Psychology at Concordia University.

Her work now looks at explanatory models of mental illness, resilience, recovery and psychological stigma from a cultural psychology perspective.
