A welcome note from the Co-chairs

With a projected attendance of  2,500 delegates from more than 50 different countries, The International Congress of the Royal College of Psychiatrists is one of the biggest events in the annual mental health conference calendar.

In 2015, from the 29th of June to the 2nd of July, the Congress comes to the city of Birmingham, UK.

From day 1 which features Professor Sir Simon Wessley, the President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Professor Renne Binder, the President of the American Psychiatric Association and Professor Diana Rose, the World’s first Professor of Service User Research in one interesting keynote session, the conference will have over 100 hours of academic programmes arranged as keynotes and parallel sessions, interspersed with time for networking and socialising.

Speakers and presenters over the 3 ½ days of the conference will include academics, physicians, psychiatrists, patients, service users, carers, psychologists, social scientists, policy makers, writers and journalists.

It promises to be a veritable treat of lectures, workshops, symposia and discussions on the pressing mental health issues of our time- an ideal conference if you want to network, listen, learn, challenge and be challenged by the latest developments in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham. See you there.

Yours sincerely

Dr Regi T Alexander & Professor Nick Craddock, Co chairs International Congress 2015
