Welcome to the Congress
It is a matter of great honour for me to share with you the details about WPA’s 2022 Thematic Congress on "Mental Health at the Workplace" being held during June 2-3, 2022, in Moscow!
Union for Mental Health is a highly prestigious organisation working in different areas of mental health and WPA’s long-standing association with this group is full of successful collaborations.
The 2022 Congress is focusing on an important topic - Mental Health at the workplace. This theme is very critical and relevant to current practice of mental health across the globe. This indeed emerges as a vital and central area among the priorities especially during and post Covid 19 pandemic. We look forward having informed discussions for creating positive & favourable conditions for the protection of mental health and well-being of workers through interagency and interdisciplinary cooperation.
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.
The presence of several eminent speakers from all over the country along with a number of academic and clinical psychiatrists from other countries highlights the importance of this academic activity. I am glad that this conference is also looking at strengthening collaborations among different mental health professionals. This will indeed prove beneficial in improving our future links with these groups.
I wish the organisers and the participants of this conference a big success and I am sure the delegates attending this meeting will have a happy stay in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.
