World Congress on Child and Adolescent Mental Health

The 23rd World Congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions will take place in Prague from 23-27 July, 2018.

Professor Bruno Falissard, the President of IACAPAP, said that “China, France, South-Africa, Canada in the past, Singapore and Dubai in the future. The IACAPAP biannual Congress is moving all around the planet and stops this year in Prague, The Czech Republic.”

“The IACAPAP Congress is a unique moment where we can meet together, from different cultures, from countries with different resources, but all much involved in child and adolescent psychiatry and mental health. Unformal and free discussions are the necessary cement that put together the bricks that comes from evidence based medicine and biomedical research. This congress will be the occasion to find both: friends open for discussion, and up to date clinical and scientific knowledge presented in a clear and synthetic way.”

This year’s congress is to mark last year’s 80th anniversary of IACAPAP. “What started in the 1930s as an isolated effort of a few child and adolescent psychiatrists in Europe has now grown to an umbrella organization spanning all corners of the world and touching the lives and well-being of millions of children,” said Maite Ferrin and Hesham Hamoda.
