Description: The 24th edition of the World Congress of the International Association of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP) will be held in Singapore! A highlight of this IACAPAP is the movement to raise awareness of mental illnesses among children with Break the Stigma for Families. Held for the first time in Asia, the agenda of our movement aligns fittingly with the "Beyond the Label" anti-stigma campaign that was started locally in 2018 by the National Council of Social Services, Singapore. The event will end with a mental health festival set within the compound of the Institute of Mental Health.
