Psychiatry and mental health are witnessing rapid changes especially with the current pandemic that is placing a big impact on health care systems around the globe. Today, treatment and recovery of mental disorders go hand in hand with promotion and prevention and there is an increased interest in rehabilitation and psycho-social interventions.

WPA, as a representative professional organization, has always taken the changing scenes in mental health as a new challenge. Although our profession may be seen being under threat, there are many opportunities that can help us consolidate psychiatry as an inspiring branch of medicine and social sciences. Bound in the history of Psychiatry is a search for an identity which has been complex and complicated, I am pleased that we have been successful in achieving many milestones aiming and reaching the highest possible mental wellbeing in our practices and policies.

The WPA is organizing its 21st World Congress at Cartagena, Colombia from 18-21 Oct 2021.
