Il Congresso EPA 2017 a Firenze 01 -04 aprile

Il 25 ° Congresso Europeo di Psichiatria (EPA 2017) faciliterà l'apprendimento, la discussione e lo scambio tra gli psichiatri europei e internazionali insieme con i leader delle organizzazioni di parti interessate nel campo della salute mentale. Guidati dal motto "Insieme per la salute mentale", una particolare attenzione del Congresso EPA sarà il dialogo tra neuroscienze e delle scienze sociali, nel contesto di un congresso psichiatria, superando la tradizionale separazione tra i domini della biologia e delle relazioni umane, che ha ingannati per troppo tempo la nostra professione e l'opinione pubblica. Unitevi a noi a Firenze il 01-04 Aprile al 2017.

The EPA 2017 Scientific Programme will be composed of five tracks:
*Note: programme is subject to change 

Research Track – is composed of sessions with a focus on current research trends in Psychiatry.

Clinical / Therapeutic Track – offers participants updated, state-of-the-art, clinical and therapeutic information which is based on research and linked to daily practice.

Educational Track – provides an update on developments in the field and the opportunity for exchange of ideas between participants and speakers.

Mental Health Policy Track – deals with principles and models for action aimed to promote mental health. 

European Track – deals with common issues for psychiatrists from across Europe and will therefore be of particular interest for members of the National Psychiatric Associations. 

Within each track, some sessions are part of the European Early Career Psychiatrists' Programme (EECPP) which invites recent graduates to participate and which is tailored to the needs of the Early Career Psychiatrist.


The Scientific Programme will consist of the following:

Ask the Expert Sessions 

Ask the Experts sessions will allow participants to meet in a small group with outstanding

participants to present their questions and gain new perspectives. Sessions will take place

at round tables and be limited to a certain number of participants with advanced sign up


EPA Forum

Following the success of the first two EPA Forums at the European Congress of Psychiatry in 2015 in Vienna and in 2016 in Madrid this new event for exchange and awareness is to be featured at each annual EPA Congress. It brings together EPA Council of National Society/Association (NPA) members and EPA Individual members, along with other European NPAs and European organisations, stakeholders and policy makers, to present and discuss matters of European importance in the field of Mental Health and Mental Health Care.
