It has been made known to us there are a number of unauthorized websites promoting the

29th World Congress of the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP)
21st Malaysian Conference of Psychological Medicine (MCPM)
July 18-21, 2017, Kuching, Sarawak

These websites are not at all connected to the conference. The organizing committee has not engaged any conferencing provider. These websites are instead promoting registration fees, hotel rooms, tours, with the intention of deceiving delegates and making money for themselves.

Thus, we advise all delegates directly to the proper website, to register and even look for reasonable hotel rooms and flight rates. Additionally, please direct all queries to the conference secretariat. Do not answer any queries or release any personal or payment information.

Dr. T. Maniam
Chair, Organizing Committee

Prof Dr Nor Zuraida Zainal
President Malaysian Psychiatric Association & Co-Organizing Chairman
