Dear colleagues,

It’s a great pleasure to invite you to the 1st Congress on Evidence Based Mental Health: From Research to Clinical Practice, which will take place in Corfu, Greece, on May 26th - 29th, 2016.

The Congress is organized by the International Society on Neurobiology and Psychopharmacology with the support and guidance of the World Psychiatric Association and it is a part of an effort for as much as possible better quality in continuous education focusing in the evidence based Psychiary. Emphasis will be placed on the provided mental health services focusing on community needs and processes related to primary care and providing health services. Furthermore, training will focus on the respect and satisfaction of the needs of both patients and their families as well as the community in general in an environment that is becoming more and more difficult and demanding, and at the same time extremely complex with the variety of structures and characteristics and the quality and financial control indicators that appear to be rapidly adopted.

Many worldwide experts have been invited to share with us their knowledge and experience in order to bridge scientific knowledge with everyday fighting practice. Finally, we hope in developing an unanimity with the participation of all parts which will be useful in everyday clinical practice.

This combination is not only a quality guarantee but also sets the bar high for future activities.

We invite you to join us and we look forward to your active participation for a successful educational activity and a fruitful dialogue.

Best Regards,

Konstantinos N. Fountoulakis
Associate Professor of Psychiatry,
