Registration now open for the new WPA online learning webinar on: Early Intervention

Updated: Oct 25, 2021



Registration is now open for the first webinar in the new World Psychiatric Association's (WPA) online learning series: ‘Early Intervention’


This webinar forms the first part of a two-part series and is titled: “Early Intervention in Psychosis – A Global Perspective”. The series will cover different aspects of this important area of mental health and will discuss how specialised Early Intervention services for Psychosis have progressed in some regions, but global implementation and personalised delivery of care requires attention. Current clinical practice has much to assimilate from evolving scientific knowledge and it is widely hoped that innovations will pave the road for future personalised treatment strategies. Both webinars will be delivered by global experts and will conclude with an opportunity to have your questions answered.


The first webinar will be opened by Dr Afzal Javed, President - World Psychiatric Association and Mrs. Zoi Rapti, Deputy Minister for Mental Health – Greece. Chaired by Prof Nikos Stefanis MD FRANZCP, the event will include presentations by three internationally acclaimed academic researchers and clinicians who will explore the theme from different perspectives.


Webinar Presentations include:

Nikolaos Koutsouleris, MD, Professor of Neurodiagnostic Applications in Psychiatry, Managing Consultant Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich Germany and Chair for Precision Psychiatry Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience King's College London UK.
