WPA has moved successfully – in scientific, social and financial terms – to the annual convening of the World Congress of Psychiatry, supported by our professional congress organiser Kenes International. The congresses have featured diversity by region, gender, age and experience. We have partnered with a range of organisations including the World Medical Association (WMA), the International Association of Women’s Mental Health, the International Federation for Psychotherapy and many others. The programs have been more inclusive than ever with expanded opportunities for people with lived experience and their families, and from other sectors to be involved. In 2020, we will convene our first-ever online General Assembly Meeting and Elections, while in early 2021 we will host our first digital World Congress of Psychiatry.
