Dr Afzal Javed President-Elect World Psychiatric Association Welcome Address

Dear Colleagues and Friends
It is a great pleasure to invite you all to the III Congress on Mental Health: Meeting the Needs of the XXI Century being held atMoscow June 26-28, 2020.
 
Union for Mental Health needs special appreciation for continuing with high level of educational and training programmes in the entire field of mental health. Like the previous meetings, 2020 event will be another remarkable effort with its special focus on Children, Society and Future. The theme of the Congress “Youth Mental Health and Well-being: Policy, Best Practices and Partnerships Worldwide” is of high relevance to the imperatives of our times. The future of our world is in the hands of young people and hence mental health and well-being of children and adolescents is a matter of priority for all of us.
 
The suggested plans for academic & clinical discussions at the meeting about prevention, promotion & interventions for mental health problems of children and adolescents will certainly lead to the timely management of such difficulties & clinical disorders in this population. It will also facilitate increase in improving social skills and personal well-being right from an early stage.
I would also like to add that World Psychiatric Association (WPA) gives a high priority to Youth Mental Health and has included this theme in WPA’s next triennium (2021-23) action plan. As WPA has endorsed this meeting as a WPA Co-sponsored meeting, we do believe that WPA’s support will add value to the future work and prove beneficial to all of us who are working for the cause and promotion of mental health.
 
I wish the Congress a grand success and look forward welcoming you all!
 
With personal regards
 
Dr Afzal Javed
President-Elect
