I've been assigned a research project for my anthropology class and would like to analyze a topic specifically in the sub-discipline of psychological anthropology. Can anyone who's familiar with this area throw some relevant ideas my way?

I'm considering looking at how Western conceptions of mental illness are affecting perceptions of depression, etc in other parts of the world.
Does anyone have other ideas? Are there "psychological anthropology" topics in contemporary popular news/culture that I could explore but am probably overlooking since I'm still wrapping my head around what this discipline involves? However, topics that are more obscure are still welcome.
