20th WPA Virtual Congress

Message from the President: Only two days to go before our 20th WPA Virtual Congress!


We are extremely excited about the upcoming 20th WPA Virtual Congress (WCP20) that kicks off this Wednesday, 10th March! It is a long-awaited meeting and we have prepared a unique experience for you! WCP20 will be our first Virtual WPA Congress, but just like our normal congresses, you will find experts from around the world discussing the latest trends and developments in our field.


To give you an idea of what to expect, you will be able to:

  • Enjoy a truly immersive and personalised virtual experience! You will be able to enjoy the new, fully personalised, interactive virtual platform from wherever you may be in the world. WCP20 is spread over 4 days filled with inspiration, learning and networking. Take part in symposia, presentations, e-posters and debates, or visit the virtual exhibition hall and network with colleagues.

  • Join Live Sessions and pre-recorded sessions! With over 190 sessions (including, plenary, accepted symposia, special lectures, panel discussions, presidential symposia etc.), we have prepared an exceptionally interesting and diverse scientific programme; all available live and on-demand to watch at your convenience!

  • Network with your peers. Even though we are virtual, you will still have the chance to engage with and learn from world-renowned international practitioners, researchers and professionals. Join chats and video groups, send questions to presenters, and of course, connect via social media.

  • Visit the Virtual Exhibition hall. Discover the latest developments from the industry by visiting their booths and speaking directly with the organisation’s/company’s representatives.

  • Learn on-demand: You will be able to access the entire scientific content whenever and wherever you want for up to 3 months after the congress.

  • Earn CME credits! Participate in the scientific programme and be eligible to receive 31 CME credits attributed to the WCP20 Virtual Congress.

  • WPA TV! Through our new virtual studio, you will be able to view the worlds’ leading mental health experts discussing current global challenges.

  • Social Event with mind reader - Shane Black. We will be holding a fun congress experience, available to all registered delegates. From astounding feats of mind-reading to unbelievable demonstrations of influence, not only will you be amazed, but you may also want to implement some of these tactics in your daily practice!


The virtual congress platform will be accessible from:

13:00 ICT/07:00 CET on Tuesday, 9 March 2021.


Whilst we would of course prefer to be meeting you all in person, I am confident that this will be an important scientific meeting, contributing extensively to the psychiatric and mental health world.


WPA looks forward to seeing you online!
