Gerard Hutchinson

Gerard Hutchinson has been a respected practitioner in the field of psychiatry for over 20 years. He has published noteworthy work examining local non-medical beliefs and healing as well as on suicide and other mental health-related research. He believes that mental health problems no longer define the affected person but instead define all of us...[these issues] enrich our world because we are all forced to seek a greater understanding of ourselves.

Hutchinson is a graduate of St. Mary’s College, the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the University of London’s Institute of Psychiatry and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He is currently a Professor of Psychiatry at the Faculty of Medical Sciences, UWI, St. Augustine.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPortofSpain, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPortofSpain event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx. Learn more about TEDx
