Starting at the Beginning - Laying the Foundation for Lifelong Mentalhealth
July 20-23, 2020
Location:  Singapore
Our 24th IACAPAP congress aims to cover broad topics that are close to our hearts but also include emerging trends and topics of interests. The full four day programme is packed with interesting talks, symposiums and panel discussions. A highlight of this IACAPAP is the movement to raise awareness of mental illnesses among children called “Break the Stigma for families”, which was first started during AACAP annual meetings and championed by Dr Andrés Martin. Held for the first time in Asia, the agenda of the movement aligns fittingly with the “Beyond the Label” anti-stigma campaign that was started locally in 2018 by the National Council of Social Services, Singapore. The event will end with a “mental health festival” set within the compound of the Institute of Mental Health, the country’s only tertiary mental health facility.
