Event Overview
Welcome message:

We look forward to welcoming you to the 9th International Conference on Early Psychosis which will be held in the beautiful metropolitan Tokyo, Japan from 17th – 19th November, 2014 at the Keio Plaza Hotel.

This is the first time the conference will be held in an Asian city, the world’s fastest-growing area. This conference will bring together international experts in the field of prevention and early intervention in psychosis.

The forum is organised for all professionals with an interest in the prevention and early intervention of psychosis and related mental disorders, to exchange and promote ideas and implementation in this area. The promotion of mental health is not just for the specialists but for everyone in the community including schools and industry. To move forward to new horizons, we need to develop new visions and novel strategies.

We are certain all of you will find this conference stimulating, rewarding and meaningful. We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo in November 2014 and to your participation in our program.

Please visit the website regularly to keep up with important information as it becomes available.
