About the Event
Together with our valued member partners, the Psychiatric Association of Thailand, and supported by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Thailand, WPA looks forward to welcoming you to the 20th WPA World Congress of Psychiatry, ‘Psychiatry in a troubled world’ in Bangkok, Thailand, 14-17 October 2020. We will review the 2017-2020 Action Plan and delve into its themes of collaboration, reaching those living with adversity, and the rich and varying ways in which the role of psychiatrist can be legitimately expressed. We will investigate how the time-honoured approaches and the newest techniques in psychiatry – including those in psychotherapies, neuromodulation, pharmacology, digital technologies and social therapies – can be used practically to support people affected by mental ill-health, their families and friends and community groups. These groups will join researchers and mental health professionals to consider advocacy, planning and policymaking across sectors to promote the advancement of psychiatry and mental health in all countries.
