Message from EPA President Prof. Silvana Galderisi
25 January 2018
It is with great pleasure that I wish you all a peaceful and healthy 2018, with success and joyful moments in your personal and professional lives.
I recently reviewed EPA activities in the past 12 months for the EPA Annual Report. I was impressed by the amount of noteworthy achievements and events: the great success of the EPA Congress, the increasing number of EPA National Psychiatric Associations and individual members, the increasing visibility of the EPA in the scenario of European main stakeholders in the field of mental health, and the creation of the annual Pascal-Boyle Prize for outstanding achievement by a woman in working to improve mental health care in Europe, represent only few examples of the accomplishments that make all of us proud of being part of the EPA.
I wish to thank all those who contributed to make this possible, hope we will maintain our momentum and look forward with enthusiasm to a next year of productive and enjoyable work.
See you all in Nice, for the 26th European Congress of Psychiatry.
