We are delighted to personally welcome each of you to the 7th World Congress for the International Association of Women’s Mental Health (IAWMH). Established in 2001 to improve the mental health of women throughout the world, the International Association for Women’s Mental Health is a Not for Profit, Non-Governmental Organization.

Our mission is

  • To improve the mental health of women throughout the world.
  • To expand the fund of knowledge about Women’s Mental Health.
  • To promote gender-sensitive and autonomy-enhancing mental health 
services for women.
  • To advance collaboration between Societies and Sections.

It is an exciting time for the IAWMH as we continue to grow and provide advocacy for women’s mental health and women with mental ill health, and support and innovation for clinicians and researchers working in these fields. Our Association is dedicated to raising global awareness about the special issues that women face with adverse impacts on mental health. Throughout the world women face different challenges at different times of their lives and confronting mental ill health can be a time of hope or else a devastating experience if proper care and understanding are not available.

The IAWMH Congresses provide important opportunities for delegates to share experiences of working with women to improve their mental health and to learn about new advances in the field. Congress delegates are crucial in the development of our Association and the impact that we can have on actually improving the mental health of women throughout the world.

This Congress is to be held in exciting Dublin with a fascinating mixture of old world traditions and the rich, vibrant, modern day Irish culture. The organizers are working very hard to ensure that the programme contains a superb mix of neuroscience, psychosocial and environmental presentations that are highly relevant to women’s mental health and treatments for mental illnesses. Throughout the Congress, we encourage the delegates to learn from each other, to share experiences, and to relax and enjoy famous Irish hospitality.

The Congress theme “Rights, Resilience and Recovery” encapsulates the many facets of women’s mental health and we hope that attending the 7th World Congress for The International Association of Women’s Mental Health enriches you all.

A very warm welcome to you
Helen Herrman
President IAWMH
