New York

Start date: 2 May 2018

Emerging mental health challenges across the globe 

The science of understanding etiology, prevention, and treatment of psychiatric disorders has always had to contend with changing prevalence, new information and technology, novel risk factors, and many other facets of our science that make studying disorders and their consequences a moving target.

In the past decade, we have witnessed a changing landscape of many important outcomes across the globe, including the rise of autism diagnoses across many countries as well as suicide, overdose and other injury.

Further, these changes are positioned in a political and social landscape that is ever changing, as societies face new and different challenges.

The 2018 WPA meeting will present a wide range of novel information regarding psychiatric disorders including the state-of-the-science for novel studies of the biology of illness, global trends in innovative treatment, prevalence, and risk factors. 

The congress will take place in New York, USA, at the Faculty House at Columbia University in Upper Manhattan 

2–4 May, 2018.
