Invitational Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is an honour and privilege to invite you to Abu Dhabi International Mental Health Congress 2020 that is planned to take place on 12-14 November, 2020 as a Vertual Conference, 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.

To celebrate our remarkable scientific legacies, the 2020 Mental Health Congress will take place under the motto “Mental Health and Covid 19”.

Medicine as a whole is going through a period of challenge world-wide and mental health and social care is being excessively affected. To rise to these challenges, we need to hold our hope and find new ways of working. 

Psychiatry’s continuing evolution, involving the organisation of better mental health services, the development of innovative models of care, and the discovery of new research paradigms, drives us to share the latest discoveries for the benefit of all. Many challenges still exist, but by drawing on the successes from the past and moving forward with new knowledge together, we can help shape a better future for professionals and patients alike.

We would like to invite you to join us in Abu Dhabi so that we can all learn from one another by sharing our experiences and knowledge to uncover new insights on the complex disorders we treat, exchange practical techniques and guidance for everyday clinical challenges, and reinforce our commitment to our patients and their carers.

The fifth ADIMHC Congress provides an opportunity for mental health experts, scientists, advocates, service providers, service users and caregivers to get together to identify and discuss significant mental health issues, transfer information and build networks and friendships.

With this in mind we are honoured to bring together some of the world’s leading mental health specialists, distinguished speakers, carers, and other advocates joining us to showcase their work and provide opportunities for interaction. Please come to join us.

We will also be honoring the contribution of individuals and organizations in advancing mental health advocacy world-wide.

We feel confident that the ADIMHC 2020 Congress will serve as a place of learning where we can all share the latest models, approaches, and research representing for all participants a treasured personal and professional experience.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
