Updated: Nov 16

World Psychiatric Association has published the final interview in the latest “Meet the Leaders” film series

WPA EC and Council Members

As part of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) "Meet the Leaders" series, we are publishing interviews from the current WPA Executive Committee (EC) members and past WPA Presidents. Over the past couple of months we have released interviews from the entire current EC and are now starting to post the videos from previous WPA Presidents (and current WPA Council members). In this insightful series of interviews, each member has shared not only a summary of their valuable contributions to the association and the field of mental health in general over the years, but also their personal views on the contributions made by WPA and its member associations.
