The COVID-19 pandemic around the world has led to many restrictions regarding travels and the hosting of events and congresses by governments and health authorities. In an effort to prevent spreading the virus and for the sake of event participants health and safety, we have decided to postpone the 20th WPA World Congress of Psychiatry, ‘Psychiatry in a troubled world’ in Bangkok, Thailand. The congress will now take place on 10-13 March 2021 at the same venue, BITEC (Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre). We will review the 2017-2020 Action Plan and delve into its themes of collaboration, reaching those living with adversity, and the rich and varying ways in which the role of psychiatrist can be legitimately expressed. We will investigate how the time-honoured approaches and the newest techniques in psychiatry – including those in psychotherapies, neuromodulation, pharmacology, digital technologies and social therapies – can be used practically to support people affected by mental ill-health, their families and friends and community groups. These groups will join researchers and mental health professionals to consider advocacy, planning and policymaking across sectors to promote the advancement of psychiatry and mental health in all countries. The WPA would like to thank all of our participants and partners for their cooperation and understanding during this time. Despite this difficult situation and the significant investment the congress represents for the WPA and its partners, we are working hard to ensure that the 20th WPA World Congress of Psychiatry, ‘Psychiatry in a troubled world’ in Bangkok, Thailand remains a success. We look forward to seeing you in Bangkok in 2021!
