About the conference

The Qatar International Mental Health Conference is the premier conference in the Arab World on this topic. This is the 5th event that is being organized by Hamad Medical Corporation to promote learning and international best practice exchange among healthcare professionals working in mental healthcare.

The initial focus of this conference was psychiatry and hence the conference was previously named the International Qatar Psychiatry Conference. However, Qatar is recognizing the value of a holistic approach to delivering mental healthcare, of which psychiatry is one of several important strands. A strategic decision has been made to change the name of the conference to reflect a more inclusive and wide-ranging view of what constitutes good mental healthcare.

This conference is for all healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, who are interested in learning and sharing their experience and expertise in mental health.
