PROGRAM OVERVIEW

CHILD AND ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH: SHAPING THE FUTURE!

With the advent of modern technology, child mental health is on the verge of witnessing a revolution. Harnessing modern technology will indeed change every aspect of mental health practice and offer exceptional opportunities for patients, families, and the community at large.

With advancements in brain imaging, genomics and personalized medicine, psychiatric diagnosis will become more specific and treatments more personalized, shaping the way for better outcomes. The spread of Telepsychiatry will allow access to patients who otherwise had no access to treatment.

Mobile technologies will give opportunities for psychotherapeutic interventions and for monitoring symptoms and outcomes on an ongoing basis. Wearable devices may provide avenues for patients to interact with the world in ways that were not possible before. New technology will also allow for advancements in treatments that will change the lives of children suffering from mental illness. Big data will enable us to answer research questions in ways that were never available before. The opportunities seem boundless!

The theme of the congress will focus on the role of modern technology in shaping the future of child mental health and there is no better place to examine this theme than Dubai, the city of the future!

Regionally Pertinent Topics

The number of children suffering around the globe has increased exponentially over the last decades. Tragically, the domestic and military conflicts that are rampant in many areas are exploiting children in unprecedented numbers. Children are forced into hard labour, military combat, the sex slave trade, and suicide. Many others bear witness to abject poverty, inhumane living conditions and unfathomable violence. In short, there is a generation of traumatized and neglected victims who have been deprived of their basic rights as a child. United Nations and its supporting affiliates cannot come close to handling the magnitude of this problem. Efforts will be required by all governmental and nongovernmental agencies to assess and provide the resources required to tackle this issue globally. By strategically planning meetings, IACAPAP can play a role in bringing attention to this monumental issue by being visible in the most affected areas. This will lend greater opportunity to directing resources from regional governments and organizations to the mental health sector, as it deals with the daunting task of rebuilding the lives of so many young, innocent, voiceless victims.
