Welcome Message

Greetings from the Latvian Psychiatric Association!

Together with The Nordic Psychiatric Association, we look forward to welcoming you to the 34th Nordic Congress of Psychiatry in Riga, Latvia, on 6th–7th June 2024.

We are excited to host such a traditional and significant event for Nordic and Baltic psychiatrist's communities. Nordic regions always have been on the front lines for defending democracy, humanity, and the independence of individuals. Such values are even important for persons with mental health difficulties, especially after long and not easy COVID time and also during the war in Ukraine. This Congress is also a very good opportunity after a long period of time to see again each other in person, discuss formally and also informally our local – Nordic and Baltic – issues and challenges in psychiatry, listen to distinguished plenary lectures, and enjoy local hospitality.

We look forward to seeing you in Riga, Latvia from the 6th to the 7th of June 2024.
