Quoted in the press release, Professor Nikolaj G. Neznanov, president of the World Society of Dynamic Psychiatry (WADP), who will participate in this Congress, indicated that It is important to have a holistic approach to dynamic psychiatry to understand the Mental Health.

Professor Neznanov did not fail to warmly welcome the evolution of ideas and concepts, particularly through the publication of articles on the lived experience of psychosis by the WADP, adds the same source.

He highlighted the emergence of a new paradigm namely the health ecosystem, calling for a multi-stakeholder approach to solve social challenges, which are sometimes at the root of mental problems.
