4,200 delegates are expected to participate in the 25th European Congress of Psychiatry, set to take place at the Fortezza da Basso from 1st to 4th April 2017. This event, organised by the European Psychiatric Association (EPA) – the biggest association in this field, founded in 1983 and based in Strasbourg – represents psychiatry in Europe, with over 7,800 active members throughout the whole continent, and focuses on care improvement and on professional excellence growth.
The association operates at a European level, cooperating with other important sector organizations, such as the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP), the European Brain Council (EBC) and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
This event will encourage learning, discussion and exchange between European and Non-European psychiatrists and between the leaders of the organisations of the parties interested in the mental health area. Led by the motto “Together for Mental Health”, special attention will be given to a dialogue between neuroscience and social sciences, overcoming the traditional separation between biology and human relations, which misled this profession and the public opinion for too many years.
