Message from the President

As we near the close of the 2017-2020 triennium, it is timely to reflect on the objectives we laid out at the beginning of my term as WPA President  and what we have been able to achieve in just under three years.

We commenced the term focused on WPA's contribution internationally to the representation, reputation, development and knowledge of psychiatry; the development of operational, project-based work that focuses on critical mental health topics at a global level; and on attracting new investment to support WPA's work, especially through partnerships and other relationships with organisations that share our objectives.

Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated Executive Committee, Board Representatives, Committees, Council and, of course, many of our members and trusted partners - I am pleased to include details of some of 


Of course it 

Examples of some of the work those task forces have been doing are below and we will continue to add to them in the lead up to the next General Assembly when we will accelerate this work, etc, etc.
