Please note that in view of the current situation and on implementation of Public Health measures relating to Covid-19 the National Conference has been postponed until further notice.
The Maltese Association of Psychiatry, Caritas, Oasi and Sedqa have come together to voice their concerns about the ever increasing number of people using drugs. This is especially true of cannabis and cocaine. Furthermore the proposed legislation of legalizing cannabis for recreational use is anticipated to further ‘normalise’ the phenomenon as well as bring about an increase in numbers of individuals with problems related to substance use.
These entities are organizing a national conference on the 24 th March 2020 under the patronage of his excellency the President of Malta Dr George Vella. The aim of this conference is to promote well-being of the individual and of society away from drug use.
