This paper describes the 3rd Pasifika Study Group (PSG), held in conjunction with the Pasifika Medical Association (PMA) Conference in Noumea in late September 2017. The PSG brought together doctors and other health professionals from Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu for case based learning sessions, sharing of service contexts and dilemmas from each Pacific nation setting and other collaboration and networking. There was a call from participants for further PSG workshops with future involvement of other Pacific mental health professionals.
