It is a matter of great honour for me to share with you the details about WPA’s 2022 Thematic Congress on "New Horizons in psychiatric practice: Creative ideas and innovative interventions" on Mental Health at the Workplace being held in Malta during November 10-12, 2022. This is second WPA Thematic Congress in the series that is taking place during this triennium.
I am pleased that Maltese Psychiatric Association, a highly prestigious professional organisation working in different areas of mental health in Malta is supporting this congress. WPA is extending its collaboration to Maltese Psychiatric Association and hope to welcome the association to be a member of WPA.
In our recent Executive Board meeting that was carried out by teleconference, we decided that there will be no other change of dates for the Congress, so one way or another, we will have a Congress next year!
Merhba - Welcome
On behalf of the Maltese Association of Psychiatry, I welcome you all to our beautiful, sunny island Malta for this wonderful, and much anticipated WPA Thematic Conference: New Horizons in Psychiatric Practice: Creative Ideas and Innovative Interventions.
Our country, in the centre of the Meditterranean Sea, is the perfect place to reconnect, recharge and refocus on what we do best –care for those with mental disorder. Malta has history dating back to the 16th Century where the Knights of St John were the only Order that would accept mentally disordered patients into their Infermeries. Very early in the 17th Century, a hospital for mentally disordered women was opened by an Italian benefactor Caterina Scappi. The asylum built in 1861 to replace the overcrowded wards that had, by then, come about still functions today.
