Speaker Bio & Presentations

Constant Mouton, MD

Special Speaker

Dr. Constant Mouton

Constant Mouton is a registered psychiatrist currently living in The Netherlands. He works with clients and their families throughout Europe and focuses on providing culturally sensitive mental health care for people with addiction and complex mental health problems.

During his studies as a medical doctor and later specializing as a (neuro)psychiatrist in South Africa, he was trained to work cross-culturally, respecting and utilising peoples’ cultural heritage, religion and spiritual beliefs to understand and treat the person in their context better. In addition, having lived and worked abroad, he has a personal understanding of the challenges of being an immigrant and expat.

As a trained medical specialist, he has experienced the value of the bio-psycho-social model of psychiatry. His studies and own experience also led him to approach mental health and addiction problems holistically and engage and utilize the strengths of clients, their families and communities.

The Southern African philosophy of Ubuntu, “I am because we are”, resonates throughout his work. He believes that by working collaboratively, we access combined resilience and restore connectedness between people. Through this connection, we are stronger and able to overcome adversity. Furthermore, the connectedness creates a space in which we can learn, improve and grow, bettering our own lives and those of others. The process of personal growth, recovery and healing occurs when we learn to focus on our strengths and resilience, creating our own story of mastery and success.

Culturally Informed Care for Addiction, ADHD & Other Mental Health Challenges?

How culture impacts diagnosis, treatment & outcomes in addiction & psychiatry.

Social, family, and cultural backgrounds determine how we experience mental health, communicate symptoms, which healthcare interventions we prefer, and the support we get from family and friends. Culture, therefore, plays a significant role in mental health needs and expectations, especially as societies are becoming more multicultural. In a world where change is the only constant, we should also acknowledge that one size doesn’t fit all in mental health. Dr Mouton explores how to design and deliver culturally-informed care in daily practice for addiction care and psychiatry. In particular, the effect of culture on addiction, ADHD and other co-occurring mental health challenges.

At the end of the session, participants will:

  1. Recognize ways in which culture, history, politics and technology continues to influence psychiatric diagnoses and treatment.
  2. Understand the impact of cultural differences on clinical communication in clinical settings such as psychiatric or addiction services.
  3. Be able to collect the relevant cultural information and produce a cultural formulation
  4. Determine readiness and motivation for change.
  5. Utilize the family’s knowledge and skills in order to motivate patients to enter and complete treatment in a culturally respectful manner
  6. Provide Culturally Responsive Case management
