The 3rd. Asia-Pacific Psychiatric Conference and 8th. International Conference in Lahore, Pakistan, is indeed very good news for our global world. It is certainly a testimony of the increasing global and regional interest of mental health as a inseparable part of health, a proof of professional leadership in order to improve populations’ care, and also a good sample of the interest of Psychosocial Rehabilitation as a key strategy to improve the situation of the severe mentally ill.
After 25 years, WAPR has accumulated considerable experience about how to implement its humanitarian and scientific principles in feasible models of intervention and management.
The conference will be a new good opportunity for discussion and exchange. I’m very happy to express my support to this important effort, and my will for full collaboration.

The Diaspora of the SAARC countries has enriched knowledge in Psychiatry and contributing a lot to the promotion of the mental health globally.
