Singapore Psychiatric Association

As the President of Singapore Psychiatric Association and President of Silver Ribbon Singapore (SRS), I warmly welcome all of you to Singapore, the beautiful lion city where the Regional Congress of the World Federation for Mental Health, will be held in October 2015. This 2-day Congress from 1 to 2 October 2015 is hosted by WFMH, Raffles College of Higher Education and SRS. There is also a post-Congress workshop with site visits on 3 October 2015. 

We are pleased to announce that the Minister for Health, Singapore would be the Guest of Honour for the Congress. The theme for the Congress is “Innovations in mental health care through holistic interventions in the Asia- Pacific Region.” Participants will be treated to a wide range of outstanding scientific programmes (see below). WFMH-RC-Singapore will be an excellent platform to discuss and develop the mental health programmes and services and also for participants to network, establish new contacts and renew existing ties with your peers.
