Welcome message

On behalf of Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Mental Health Service, I am pleased to announce that we are once again preparing a rich and dynamic conference program on the fascinating topic of mental health. The 5th Qatar International Mental Health Conference is one of the leading conferences in the Gulf region dedicated to continuing professional development for all healthcare professionals.

Whether you are a doctor, nurse or allied health professional; scientist, researcher or clinical psychiatrist; working in a hospital, private clinic, or a community setting, – you will benefit from an array of interesting lectures and thought provoking discussions throughout the duration of the Conference. Internationally renowned speakers will provide advances in best practices specifically designed to address the everyday challenges of improving outcomes for your patients.

The Conference will bring together some of the best minds in mental health. Expert clinicians, researchers and leaders in the field will share the latest advancements in mental health and discuss the impact on the mental health sector today.

The 5th Qatar International Mental Health Conference is the ideal platform for peer-to-peer learning and innovation. As in previous years, we will continue to provide excellent opportunities for all healthcare professionals to enhance their learning and professional development. Informative and stimulating educational sessions delivered over two and a half days promise enrichment and networking, while raising the potential for scientific collaborations.

Furthermore, the Conference is an outstanding opportunity to participate in plenary sessions and innovative workshops. We encourage all participants to experience the wide range of topics that feature in modern-day mental healthcare, which not only includes psychiatry but a whole host of supporting and complementary therapies.

Our goal is to inspire you to use this time to share your own insights and experiences with other mental health professionals and together find solutions to tackle clinical challenges.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the Conference and look forward to welcoming you to Doha this December 2016.

Best wishes
