The harbor of Hamburg is an open tidal port on the lower Elbe in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. With an area of 7,236 hectares, it is the largest seaport in Germany and, next to the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp, the third largest in Europe. In the harbor area there are many opportunities to meet up and to end the day. The Rickmer Rickmers arrived in Hamburg in 1983 and her appearance was the highlight on the 794th birthday celebrations of Hamburg harbor, held every year around the 7th May.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to join us for the XVII World Congress of Psychiatry being held from 8 – 12 October 2017 in Berlin.
This will be jointly hosted by the World Psychiatric Association in association with the German Association for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics (DGPPN) with the congress theme: “Psychiatry of the 21st Century: Context, Controversies and Commitment“.
This World Congress offers an ideal opportunity to take stock of the state of psychiatry in the early part of the 21st century and share the vision and the future direction of exciting developments in the field. In addition to the new developments in research and clinical practice the congress will focus on human rights of individuals with mental illness as well as the German tradition of Psychopathology. The relationship between society and psychiatry is of paramount importance. A galaxy of star speakers from around the globe will provide insights into their fields of expertise with innovative and attractive formats. There will be planned sessions working with patient groups, family and carer groups, charities and other partner organizations.
The demand for better diagnostics and evidence-based treatment has increased in all settings and we must address that and share examples of good practice. The World Psychiatric Association is commit- ted to improve the health care of psychiatric patients wherever they live through raising standards of training, education as well as clinical practice by psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.
This congress is an excellent opportunity to share academic developments, research and clinical practice. It will also provide a forum for better and closer social interactions and support.
Moreover, I am sure that Berlin will be an impressive host. Berlin is a special metropolis where the past and present meet and the atmosphere is characterized by the traditional, the modern and the avantgarde.
We look forward to seeing you in Berlin.
Organizer: World Psychiatric Association and the German Association for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.
Congress location: Messe Berlin, Germany

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to join us for the 12th conference of the European Network for Mental Health Service Evaluation (ENMESH). The conference is being held 5 – 7 October 2017 at the University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands. This year the conference theme is “Conceptualizing, measuring and influencing context in mental health care: from individual to society”.
The European Network for Mental Health Service Evaluation (ENMESH) has a history of progressing thinking and research about mental health services and systems within and beyond Europe since its first conference in 1994, and we are delighted that our colleagues at Groningen are hosting this important event. The 2017 conference builds on the trajectory established in previous ENMESH conferences, from an initial focus on theoretical clarity and measurement approaches, through to epidemiological studies and the evaluation of innovative interventions and service models. The themes for Groningen 2017 reflect a further maturing of the field, with a focus on individualising and contextualising care. These themes reflect the reality that the best mental health care involves blending professional expertise with lived experience, and the importance of moving beyond invariant solutions to context-specific and culturally-sensitive approaches. I am optimistic that the presentations at Groningen 2017 will include world-leading research, and I look forward to seeing you there.
