Congress 2018

Dear Colegues

It is our greatest pleasure to invite you to join us at the WPA Co-sponsored  6th  Macedonian Psychiatric Congress and International Meeting-

”Psychiatry and Mental Health in 21st Century ”

which will take place in hotel Bellevue Metropol resort, Ohrid Macedonia from 31st of October to 3th of November 2018.

We believe that the city of Ohrid, which is the source of our culture, spirituality and very early treatment of mentally ill people is the perfect place to bring together psychiatrists and mental health professionals from all over the world. We hope to provide a pleasant environment in which we can exchange our experiences and knowledge about the challenges in psychiatry and mental health at the beginning of 21 century.

The Scientific Program Sessions will be in English and Macedonian language (with simultaneous translation of all the Plenary Sessions and Symposia).
