Distinguished Colleagues,
The first Psychopharmacology Treatment Updating Meeting of the Association of Psychopharmacology was held in Antalya in 2008 and continued regularly and repeated bienially. The updating meetings of our association were suspended after 2012 due to International Congresses are being held anually. On the grounds of COVID-19 pandemic affecting the whole world and our country, the 12th International Congress on Psychopharmacology and the 8th International Symposium on Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology could not be held in 2020 and our congress has been postponed to be held in Antalya on 17-20 November 2021.

“The Psychiatry in the COVID-19 Pandemic Process: Difficulties and Opportunities” meeting, which was aimed to be reviewed by competent Turkish and İnternational speakers within the scope of the most up-to-date information on neurobiology of psychiatric diseases, evidence-based scientific algorithms and treatment approaches, was held online with your valuable participation and contributions on April 10-11, 2021. We thank you for your valuable participation at the International Update Symposium.
