We assure you that this Congress will be fertile soil for knowledge on the latest and most effective strategies in the management of some of our patients and we feel privileged indeed to have an array of world-class speakers and distinguished guests from several countries who shall share their expertise and perspectives in various areas of mutual relevance.

Scientific evidence for psychiatric therapeutics has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years and it is the aim of this conference to spell out and clarify the best practice methods that should evolve from the current evidence that is available.

In addition, delegates will have the pleasure to visit and enjoy the “City of Hornbills” and “Malaysia’s City of Unity”. Kuching, Sarawak is the capital city of the state of Sarawak and is the melting pot of several diverse cultures and traditions of the state.
