WPA Congress of Psychiatry - Welcome Letter

Welcome to WCP

Emigration, suicide, violence, new addictions, poverty, discrimination, toxic environments, and the pressures that come with navigating a world of gender diversity and sexuality… all are issues not only key to the mental health agenda in Mexico, but also the world over.  Now, more than ever, it is essential for the psychiatric community to stand firm for mental health.

Join us in Mexico City, Mexico, 27-30 September 2018 to discuss how psychiatry can have an impact on these important practice and social challenges.  We'll consider how new techniques in neuroscience, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, epigenetics and digital psychiatry can be used practically to support people affected by mental ill-health, their families and friends, community groups, scientific researchers and all mental health professionals.

Mexico is a colorful country full of contrasts, rich in culture, traditions and food; together with its diverse ethnicity, it combines to create a mosaic of beauty and interest.  Visitors to Mexico will quickly learn that in amongst this cultural diversity one important trait is common to all: the kindness of the Mexican people and their eagerness to share their  country's beauty with all from around the world.

Meet and hear from world experts and share in research and learnings that can be applied across borders for local benefit.  Don't miss out on being part of these important discussions.  

We look forward to seeing you in Mexico City!
