-Edinburgh 2014
!The Most Successful WAIMH Congress Ever

Over 1600 participants attended the 14th World Congress in Edinburgh making it one of the largest meetings in it's history. The meeting also continued the WAIMH tradition with its warm and friendly athmosphere.

With participants from 55 countries, the congress  was a truly international gathering of leading experts at the cutting-edge of research and clinical practice in the field of infant mental health.

The five day programme offered  delegates the choice of over 1000 oral presentations, workshops, poster discussions and masterclasses and was described by one delegate as a “wonderfully rich experience of new content, new ideas and new ways of thinking.”

“We were extremely pleased with the conference in Edinburgh and had the sense that WAIMH has come of age.  The extraordinary turnout of 1600 delegates was just one indicator that the WAIMH of the 21st century is markedly different than the one that formed in 1992.  Young vibrant and fully committed investigators were everywhere.  Poster sessions were packed, the integration of experienced and aging investigators with the forthcoming generation was just exciting and hopeful.  Nearly 1500 of the 1700 delegates came from outside the UK, and their diversity appeared to be greater than I remember from the past.” 
Honorary President of WAIMH, Hiram Fitzgerald

  

Here's what the delegates say:

'This WAIMH Congress was amazing!!! Just like the Congress in Leipzig, this was a fantastic opportunity to learn from world experts about the mental health and optimal development of infants, toddlers and their families across cultures and around the world.'

'Great location! Great conference!'

'Overall, the program was outstanding -- worthy of the effort spent in putting it together.'
