Prof. Arvinkumar Bhana


I am a chief specialist scientist in the Health Systems Research Unit at the South African Medical Research Council. I am a registered clinical psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa since 1982 and hold an Honorary Associate Professorship in the School of Nursing and Public Health at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. I am also a lead investigator in the DST/NRF: Centre of Excellence in Human Development at the University of Witwatersrand. I obtained my MA degree in psychology from the University of Durban-Westville and a PhD in Clinical and Community Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in the United States. I collaborate on several international grants related to adolescent mental health and psychosocial well-being as well as integration of mental health into primary care among adults.
