Human Rights

It is my pleasure to invite you, on behalf of the International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA) and the World Psychiatric Association Section of Old Age Psychiatry (WPA-SOAP), to be our guest in a webinar on Human Rights and Mental Health of Older Adults. The program will highlight the human rights of older adults and its real world implementation challenges, especially during this pandemic.

Both organizations would like to celebrate together the next Human Rights Day, 10 December, with this topic as part of the IPA Webinar Series. These webinars are educational events on topics that are timely and relevant to the field of mental health for older adults.

Hear from renowned experts in the field, Professors Israel Doron and Norman Sartorius, followed by a Q&A Panel Discussion with Dr. Carlos Augusto de Mendonça Lima and moderated by Dr. Kiran Rabheru.
