  • It is time to assert that we know quite a lot about the biopsychosocial pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Copy number variations (CNVs) account for ~1% of all cases and up to 15% of those with co-morbid Learning Disability. More than 200 identified Genome Wide Associations Study (GWAS) ‘hits’ have subtle effects on neurodevelopment and synaptic plasticity, especially in the context of obstetric complications and childhood adversities.   Such gene-environment interactions lead to subtle impairments of brain function and structure evident in high risk populations. Psychosis is precipitated by cannabis, other illicit drugs and stress in the vulnerable, accompanied by increasing dopamine turnover and reducing cortical thickness. Thus, perception and thought are less constrained by previous experience, promoting delusions and hallucinations. Greater than average risk factor burdens and continuing grey matter loss are associated with a poor prognosis.

    Precision medicine principles that been transformative in other fields of medicine, have not yet been fully applied to psychiatry.  However, there are innovative treatments and new scientific discoveries that may be able to tranform the practice of psychiatry in important ways.  In this talk, we will examine precision psychiatry through the lens of perinatal mental health and discuss novel genetic, other biomarker, pharmacologic and care delivery approaches that may improve outcomes for our patients.

  • Chair: Professor Hugo Critchley, Brighton and Sussex Medical School

    Depression, agitation, and other neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) are a common challenge for people with dementia with profound negative impacts for them and their family carers. Non-drug care is first-line treatment, but evidence on medication use evidence is sparse, other than for antipsychotics in agitation which have significant harms. Antidepressants have increasingly been used as treatments for depression in dementia and as alternatives to antipsychotics in agitation, but with little evidence to support their use. Here we will review the status of NPS as a treatment target and the effectiveness of drug treatments using data from the SYMBAD and SADD RCTs. The concept of NPS in dementia being a complex problem requiring the skills of secondary mental health care and a multifaceted personalised approach will be explored. The limitations of seeking simple answers (such as medication) for a complex problem (NPS in dementia) will be discussed.

    With the COVID-19 pandemic coming to an end, demand for mental health is at its highest in years. Technology and telepsychiatry are now widely utilized tools, and in the U.S., a new nationwide 9-8-8 hotline for mental health is being adopted, presenting psychiatry with both an inflection point, and an opportunity. In this moment, the American Psychiatric Association will take that opportunity to build a bridge to the future of psychiatry. Through interprofessional collaboration, models of care such as Collaborative Care, and innovation in care delivery and assessment,  this session will provide a framework and vision for how American organized psychiatry is approaching rebuilding a mental health system to reach all those who need it: today and into the future.

It will draw on evidence from the US, the UK, South Africa, Australia and other countries.

  • Chair: Dr Regi Alexander, Associate Dean for Advanced Learning and Conferences

    The ICD-11 is the first comprehensive revision of the ICD in 30 years, and incorporates major advances in scientific evidence, best clinical practices, and health information systems. The WHO Department of Mental Health and Substance Use has led the development of the Clinical Descriptions and Diagnostic Requirements for ICD-11 Mental, Behavioural or Neurodevelopmental Disorders (CDDR), which provide the information needed by psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to reliably apply the ICD-11 classification of Mental, Behavioral or Neurodevelopmental Disorders in their work with patients. 

    This presentation will provide an overview of the ICD-11 mental disorders classification and the CDDR and their development and describe important innovations relative to ICD-10. An important innovation is the incorporation of dimensional approaches within a categorical system. New disorders have been added to the ICD-11, several of which have generated controversy, and a substantial number have been deleted. The Cartesian separation of “organic” and “non-organic” disorders has largely been eliminated. Importantly, ICD-10 gender identity disorders have been reformulated as gender incongruence of adolescence and adulthood and gender incongruence of childhood and are no longer considered mental disorders.

    The transition to a new version of the ICD requires careful planning at the national and health system level to guarantee functionality, interoperability of systems, and quality of data. Early engagement in the transition, such as is occurring in Scotland, leads to improved identification of local needs and the opportunity to design change management approaches. National professional societies such as the Royal College of Psychiatrists will be fundamental in the development and implementation of country-specific transition and implementation plans for ICD-11, as well as in the training of the health care workforce.

  • We have revamped our traditional Congress Gala Dinner this year to host a new and improved Congress Party!

    We can't wait to welcome you to the Caves, an historic Edinburgh venue. There was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as “Whisky Row”. Every room has a story to tell and a special place in Scottish history, from vaults that served as the stables to the French Cavalry who were at one time bodyguards to the Royal Family, to remains of the houses that pre-date the Bridge itself, with the original terracotta floor tiles still intact! This amazing and fantastically unique venue will provide an incredible back drop to our party.

    Included in your ticket is a complimentary drink on arrival, an evening buffet and entertainment in the form of a traditional Scottish ceilidh!

    There will also be a cash bar available throughout the night.

  • In this workshop I will start by discussing what Haiku is, talk about the structure of classical Haiku, and focus on the nature of images in Haiku. I will give examples drawn from Basho (1644-1694) and other masters. Most of the time will be spent on writing Haikus and discussing how to think about Haikus and how to improve on the examples produced during the workshop.

    The high prevalence of domestic violence and abuse has sometimes been termed the shadow pandemic - a pervasive public mental health problem for centuries and an overlooked cause of physical injury including death by suicide and homicide.  People with mental health problems, particularly women and those with severe mental health problems, were already at increased risk of experiencing domestic abuse and sexual violence before the Covid pandemic but the pandemic exacerbated structural inequalities and the challenges in service delivery  may have reduced rates of identification of victims/survivors and perpetrators. Psychiatrists are well placed to identify and reduce these risks, can highlight the relationship between family violence and mental health problems (including substance misuse) to the general public and policy makers, and advocate for policy and societal change

  • This talk will give an overview of research on mental health in autism across the lifespan. It will focus, in particular, on new work exploring post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in autistic adults. Our recent research suggests autistic people may be more vulnerable to developing PTSD, and do so following experiences that non-autistic people might not find traumatic. Qualitative and quantitative work, published and in progress, will be presented, with conclusions and implications for both theory and practice.
