It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to attend the 13th Emirates Society Mental Health International Congress, at Metropolitan Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from 21-22 March 2019 along with a pre-congress workshop on 20 March 2019.
The theme of the congress “The Power of 3P: Psychiatry, Psychology & Philosophy” was chosen to elaborate on these three approaches of the mind which may be integrated to highlight the concept of mental illness. To paint a complete picture of the mental illnesses, we need to understand a fruitful crossover between disciplines of psychiatry, psychology and philosophy.
And to address these thoughts we have impressive and diverse scientific sessions, which will be weaved through the plenaries, symposiums, roundtable debates, interactive educations, meet the expert sessions and workshops. These scientific programs will bring together national and international experts to exchange experiences and knowledge in mental health as well as building up a professional network and different forms of cooperation in the future.
I trust that you will find the congress stimulating and rewarding, yet despite the busy schedule, you will spare some time to enjoy the beauty of Dubai. Dubai is currently a very international city and one of the most visited in the world.
