Dear colleagues, dear friends,


It is our great pleasure to invite you to take a part on our 16th National Congress of the Serbian Psychiatric Association, which will be held in the period of 19 – 22 May 2022 in Belgrade. Our wish is for the Congress to be held in “live” format, as done so far. With sincere hope that it will be so, we will also provide the participants with the “hybrid” form of the congress participation. In addition to local speakers, numerous international and experts from our region will take part in the Congress.  

We also use this opportunity to invite you to submit abstracts for the “Poster Session” of the Congress. The abstracts will be printed in a special issue of the journal Engrami. The deadline for submitting abstracts is March 31, 2022 (please find more information below). You can submit the abstracts by sending them to the e-mail address kongresUPS2022@gmail.com

We are confident that our 16th National Congress will be a good opportunity for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, residents and all others involved in mental health care to exchange ideas and skills from our profession, always full of challenges and questions to be answered.
