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.

This Congress is focusing on important topic related to WPA’s sectional collaboration. The topics covered in the congress will be highly relevant to current practice of mental health across the globe. I am pleased that the meeting also plans to cover other important topics of interest covering entire field of mental health with a strong focus on the issues of practice of psychiatry looking at diversity, inclusion and setting priorities for our future work.
