Mood and anxiety disorders are the most prevalent of all psychiatric disorders, are very disabling and costly, in terms of human suffering as well as economic cost, hence they warrant special attention. Leaders in the field of anxiety and mood disorders will review and discuss the most recent advances in the diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of anxiety and mood disorders.
The International Anxiety Disorders Symposium will take place at the prestigious Arabella Sheraton in the heart of Cape Town thereby offering ample opportunity for sightseeing.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town and to receiving your poster abstract submissions.
