Conference 2023

The Maltese Association of Psychiatry successfully held its Annual Conference on 28 & 29 November 2023 at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta.

This year’s chosen theme was Mental Health and the Environment. Look around us – climate change, noisy and dirty roads, dusty air and polluted sea. Our youths are calling us to action to affect change. We are increasingly aware of the effect our surroundings have on us. Even within the work environment, including practicing in crowded wards, or run-down clinics. From natural disasters, toxic waste, lack of green spaces, urbanicity, to traffic, light and sound pollution: we would like to explore the evidence of the relationship (harmful or beneficial) between environmental factors and mental health.

Through this community of academics, professionals, activists and experts by experience, we hope to enrich our minds with information, create awareness and call to action policy makers to invest in prevention strategies and work towards achieving optimal mental health for all.
