Our Role

The Maltese Association of Psychiatry (MAP) is a non-profit Voluntary Organisation in terms of Article 3 of the Voluntary Organisations Act 2007 of the Laws of Malta (Act. No. XXII of 2007) with identification number VO/1391. The MAP was set up in 2013 in order to unite and represent psychiatrists in Malta.

The MAP is committed to set standards and promote the highest quality of psychiatric care for individuals suffering from mental health problems and support their carers. In order to do so, it promotes the continuous professional development and the highest level of professional competence of psychiatrists in Malta.

We, at the MAP believe in a holistic multidisciplinary approach to care for those suffering from mental health problems. Thus, we uphold collaboration with professional and patient associations on both national and international levels in order to further these objectives. Furthermore, we serve as a public voice in issues related to mental health.
