  • WPA Thematic Congress 2023

    About The Event

    Dear Colleagues,

    It is a matter of great honour for me to send my greetings to WPA Thematic Congress being held at Abu Dhabi from 5-7 May 2023.


    This is an important meeting in the region and is taking place with the theme "INNOVATIONS IN TREATMENT AND PSYCHOSOCIAL REHABILITATION" This congress is organised by WPA Scientific Section on psychiatric Rehabilitation, and we are getting support from many other sections as well as regional member societies.


    The theme of the conference, "Innovations in the treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation", is very important and relevant to current practice of psychiatry especially during and post Covid 19 pandemic. I am pleased that the meeting also plans to cover other important topics of interest including entire field of mental health with a strong focus on the issues of practice of psychiatry in low and middle income and developing countries.


    Links of WPA scientific sections with WPA membership emphasize the important of establishing contacts by promoting exchange of professional expertise around the globe. The presence of several eminent speakers from all over the region along with a number of academic and clinical psychiatrists from other countries highlights the importance of this academic activity.


    I am glad that this conference is also looking at strengthening collaborations among different mental health professionals. This will indeed prove beneficial in improving our links with all mental health professional groups.


    I wish the organisers and the participants of this conference a big susses and happy stay in Abu Dhabi - one of the best cities around the globe.
