Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to a joint meeting of the 6th WADD World Congress and the 28th Congress of the Mexican Psychiatry Association which will take place in Mexico City beginning June 21st to 24 th 2022.

The World Association on Dual Disorders (WADD) in conjunction with APM invite you to join us for this major event to discuss Dual Disorders, addictions and other mental disorders. The theme for this year’s congress is Dual Disorders: Addicions and other Mental Disorders. A World of Knowledge and Experience.

As the multiple and on-going challenges of 2022 unfold, we must continue to reflect on new strategies to overcome barriers. However, we have the firm determination and conviction that it will be possible to receive you all in person in Mexico City to celebrate the scientific sessions that constitute this joint meeting.

The most prominent opinion leaders in the scientific community will join us in an international environment including delegates from around 70 countries, to update us on the latest developments in research and clinical treatment of addictions and other concurrent mental and medical disorders.

The WADD and APM are committed to bringing scientific knowledge closer and improving care for patients suffering from dual disorders in every country. We aim to improve standards in training, education and clinical practice of psychiatrists and other professionals working in Dual Disorders.

We look forward to meeting you in Mexico City, host city of our Congress, the nation’s capital, vibrant, multifaceted and always on the move.

See you soon in Mexico!
