Dear Colleagues & Friends,
It is an honour and privilege to invite you to XIV World Congress of World Association For Psychosocial Rehabilitation (WAPR) and 7th Abu Dhabi International Mental Health Conference that is planned to take place on 9-11 December, 2021 as a Hybrid Event at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi, UAE – a vibrant and fast-growing city that combines state of the art facilities and infrastructures, as well as a glimpse into an ancient and endlessly fascinating past.
In 2021, our theme will be “Mental health, rights, equity, recovery and social inclusion in testing times” which is apt as the pandemic has engulfed the whole world at different time lines and with varied severities, countries across the globe have gone for lockdowns ranging from partial to complete. 
The conference program is designed to challenge, inspire, and encourage participants while facilitating discussion. It includes an extensive range of topics with keynotes, concurrent sessions, workshops and posters to examine solutions and share ideas for improving the quality of life for our mentally ill patient. 
The scientific committee has developed a truly international event with high profile program that will satisfy all of your expectations and is rich and due to the success. The program will focus on the latest developments in current and controversial issues of our specialty, aims to offer reliable scientific updates in child and adult behavioral health and meet the challenges and opportunities that arise. 
Keynote lectures, submitted papers, Symposia, workshops and case studies will discuss how approaches and techniques can be incorporated into daily practice. Featuring National and International leading clinical practitioners, academics, and mental health experts, the conference will motivate and inspire professionals to make change and provide the best possible outcome for those living with mental health conditions. 
This unique event will bring together prominent clinical practitioners, academics, service providers and mental health experts to deliberate and discuss mental health issues confronting the UAE, the region and the world. 
The program will allow ample opportunities for participants to network collaborate and share ideas to enhance the quality and safety practices for mental care provided globally. 
I would like to welcome you all in this meeting and I am confident that all the discussions and efforts that will be made during this conference will translate into a major step towards quality mental health care and service for the benefit of the people in need. 
Looking forward to welcome you on the 9-11 December 2021 in our beautiful city of Abu Dhabi. 
This is an event not to be missed!
