We are delighted to announce that the WPA Thematic Congress “Mental Health at the Workplace” will be
held on June 2-3, 2022, in Moscow!
The Congress is aimed at creating favorable conditions for the protection of mental health and well-being
of workers through interagency and interdisciplinary cooperation.
All of us are engaged in professional activities most of our lives and we are aware that our work
conditions largely determine the entire hierarchy of the moral and spiritual meanings of our personal
existence, and affects the well-being of our families.
We also know that in the context of a pandemic that negatively affected the economy and social security
of the population, the world of work has been seriously affected. We all faced threats to our health, new
working conditions, family and personal problems caused by forced isolation. All of these could cause
increased anxiety, stress, which could negatively affect our mental health and well-being.
In this regard, we express the hope that the Congress will become a global platform for all interested
stakeholders including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists; leaders and specialists of
companies within the production sphere and the sphere of services, HR services; policymakers and the
media, NGOs and community leaders who can provide a consolidated position on how to address mental
health and well-being of workers all over the world.
Welcome to Moscow! Welcome to the world of professionals who will exchange experiences and present
the best practices of national and corporate strategies and programs aimed at preserving the mental
health and well-being of the working-age population!
On behalf of the Union for Mental Health, the host organization, let us express our deep gratitude to the
World Psychiatric Association and personally to President Dr. Afzal Javed for the opportunity to organize
a thematic congress on such an important for all of us topic!
