From the
Organizing Committee

It is our pleasure to invite you for the WASP Asia Pacific Hybrid Congress, 2021 to be held at New Delhi on 16th-18th September 2021. In the last one year, the world allover has been affected by an unprecedented human crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, which also led to a halt of many scientific meetings, though it opened a new avenue of virtual programs.

The World Association of Social Psychiatry (WASP) has decided to organize this international meeting in a hybrid mode.

The theme of the Congress has been chosen as “Innovations in Social Psychiatry Across the World”, considering how the social psychiatry has helped in dealing with the mental health issues in the background of the Covid-19 pandemic and has provided opportunity to integrate its principles into the “rethink” of mental healthcare.

The Congress will have plenary sessions, symposiums, panel discussions, workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions.

We promise you highly scientifically stimulating program with full opportunities of interactions. This congress aims to create a conducive environment for exchange of ideas and better collaboration between mental health professionals and specialists in order to develop better mental health interventions informed by innovations in social psychiatry.

We are planning to organize the Congress in a hybrid mode so that the delegates from all around the world can attend the meeting. Those who find it convenient to attend in a physical mode are most welcome. The local organizing committee will be happy to provide all possible assistance.

We will be sharing more details shortly.

Looking forward to see you in the WASP Asia Pacific Hybrid Congress 2021.
