“The bio-psycho-social model – The future of psychiatry”
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The 20th World Congress for Social Psychiatry was held in Marrakech, Morocco from 23 to 27 October 2010. More than 1,300 participants attended from 76 different countries. The high quality of the scientific and the cultural programmes were very much appreciated by the attendees.
We want to have an even more successful 21st World Congress for Social Psychiatry in Lisbon, Portugal, from 29 June 2013 to 3 July 2013. We will make sure to have an outstanding quality of scientific sessions, along with the discovery of the cultural richness of the hosting city and country.
Please disseminate the information among mental health workers who might be interested.
With kindest regards and wishes,
