Postponement due to Covid-19

With deep regret, we have decided to postpone the 20th Congress of the EPA Section of Epidemiology and Social Psychiatry until 2022. We have taken this decision in the best interests of the health & safety of our delegates, speakers, staff, and the wider community during the current Covid-19 global pandemic.  We plan to reorganise our congress for a time in 2022, in Cambridge, when public health responses to mental health needs in the wake of Covid-19 are likely to be more important than ever.
