Join us at the Royal College of Physicians in London for the 6th Biennial Congress of The International Society of Affective Disorders, 18th-20th April, 2012.

This major international conference aims to promote networking, exchange of ideas and experiences, and advance awareness of the consequence of mental health to global health and human development.

Although the affective disorders are not a clearly delineated group of illnesses they include unipolar and bipolar depression, generalised anxiety disorder, and more specific anxiety disorders such as agoraphobia, panic disorder and social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There is a high level of similarity and co-morbidity among these illnesses and it is sensible to consider them as
a single group.
