Call for expression of interest for the constitution of two new EPA Scientific Sections
Professor Falkai and the EPA Executive Committee members have recently expressed their motivation to create two new Sections on the topics of “Climate Change and Mental Disorders” and “Public Mental Health”. Before formally setting up these two new Sections, we need to engage experts and interested colleagues to build up the Sections. We are therefore looking for individuals with an expertise or a strong interest in these two topics.

We are inviting members of NPAs to indicate their interest to join one of these Sections to melanie.rieder@europsy.net by Monday, 9 May 2022. Read the full Call for Applications here
