3RD CROATIAN CONGRESS ON PSYCHOTRAUMA with international participation: "Mental Health During and After COVID-19 Pandemic"

Dear Colleagues,

It is a special honor and pleasure to invite you to the 3rd Croatian Congress on Psychotrauma with international participation entitled "Mental health during and after the COVID-19 pandemic".

When prof. Gržeta Rončević welcomed us in the wonderful Kvarner ambience, we have agreed to meet in Split in two years. Discussing the topic of our future congress, we could not have imagined that we would face unprecedented events that would change the entire world.

Mental health care is an important task for every community, and due to the complexity of the factors that a'ect mental health, it is a great challenge for society, regardless of the level of development, cultural characteristics and social circumstances. This challenge has surpassed everything we have known so far in the last year, confronted us with the new and unknown, encouraged us to adapt, learn and explore, made us re-examine our current knowledge of mental health. At the same time, it brought together experts from various specialties in search of solutions to both physical health threats, current and future mental health threats. Facing COVID 19 virus, social isolation, con&nement in homes, inability to meet colleagues and friends, disruption of daily life structure, job loss, &nancial insecurity and material problems, increase in domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse are old, new problems we face at the time of the pandemic.

The goal of this congress is to exchange knowledge and experience of experts of various pro&les on the impact of the pandemic on mental health, as well as to explore the long-term consequences of this stressful and traumatic experience on the lives of all of us. Therefore, we invite you to contribute to the success of the 3rd Croatian Congress on Psychotrauma with your presence and active participation. We look forward to working together and socializing in our and yours, ancient and modern, unique Split, in November 2021.
