Welcome to the Congress



We are very happy that the "Congress on Mental Health:Meeting the Needs of the XXI Century” is being held on 7-8 October 2016, at  Moscow, Russia. The World Psychiatric Association is very pleased to have co-sponsored this event.


I am looking forward to discuss the WPA Mental Health Strategies during the Plenary session on “Investing in Mental Health through Interdisciplinary and Inter-sectoral Dialogue”.


We are sending our best wishes to Natalya Treushnikova,
