Mental health awareness, well-being and access to professional and affordable mental health care continue to be major areas of concern around the world. Mental health problems have become one of the leading causes for absenteeism from work, early retirement and remain a major challenge for many individuals. Healthcare organizations and professionals need to have an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to delivering mental healthcare in order to provide better patient centered care that is equitable and effective.

The 7th Qatar International Mental Health Conference is one of the leading conferences in the region dedicated to continuing professional development; it is also designed to promote peer-to-peer learning and innovation in this field. 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 what practice looks like for Qatar. 

Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Mental Health Service is once again preparing a rich and dynamic conference program designed to raise knowledge and understanding of mental health and wellbeing among 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. Internationally renowned speakers will provide advances in best practices specifically designed to address the everyday challenges of improving outcomes for your patients.

We encourage all participants to experience the wide range of topics that feature in modern-day mental healthcare, which includes psychiatry and 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 professionals and collaborate on finding multi-disciplinary based solutions to tackle clinical challenges in ways that are best suited for patients in this region.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the Conference and look forward to welcoming you this December 2018.
