Invitation to join in ICD-11

The Global Clinical Practice Network (GCPN) is an international and multilingual network of mental health and primary care professionals, established by the World Health Organizations Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse. The GCPN was established as a core mechanism for the development of the classification of mental and behavioural disorders in the next version of WHOs International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11).

GCPN members are part of a global community of professionals who have volunteered to lend their clinical expertise by reviewing materials, providing feedback about ideas and concepts that are being developed as part of the ICD-11, and participating in internet-based field studies. The information provided by GCPN members will directly influence WHOs decisions about the structure and content of the new classification system, which in turn affect the activities of health professionals worldwide.

Your participation is critical in order to help ensure the clinical utility and global applicability of the new classification. The surveys or studies in which you are invited to participate will be based on your own professional interests, activities, and expertise. You will be asked to participate in such activities no more than once per month, and each survey or study will require no more than about 30 minutes of your time. You will never be asked to provide identifying information about your patients.

As of June, 2014, over 10,701 health professionals from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, representing all global regions and 127 countries have registered to participate in the GCPN. We are actively recruiting members to the GCPN and aim to achieve a membership base of at least 10,000. Any mental health or primary care professional who has completed his or her training, and is qualified to practice in his or her country, is eligible to participate. GCPN registration takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

WFMH XXth Congress 2015

It is our pleasure to welcome all of you to the World Congress of The World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH 2015) in Cairo, Egypt, on 16-19 October 2015. www.wfmh2015.com

This Congress is being organized by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), The Royal College of Psychiatrists; Middle East Division, The Behman Hospital, Egypt and the Egyptian Society for the Rights of People with Mental Illness.

Many of the countries in the Middle East are facing a period of sociopolitical and economic problems. It will certainly impact mental health in the region. In view of this we selected Cairo as the site of the Congress held on 2015, hoping to provide an opportunity to discuss the subject in depth and to provide support to professionals and carers.

It is, therefore, timely to bring together the very people whose concern is the global rights of those with mental health problems, namely service users, carers, advocates, social workers, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists and all other concerned parties.

We promise to produce a rich scientific, clinical, and practice-based program, with contributions from service users, their families and carers, as well as an interesting introduction to the culture, arts and social life of the local community in Cairo via several social, cultural and artistic events. Cairo is a city with an ancient history; the modern city is equally fascinating and challenging.

On behalf of all of the organizers, we welcome you all to Egypt in October 2015 www.wfmh2015.com
