A look back at RANZCP 2023 Congress

The College welcomed close to 1,800 delegates in Perth, and over 450 delegates online, for our biggest Congress yet. 

The theme, new horizons connected futures, sparked curiosity, challenged assumptions and fed our imaginations about how to achieve a truly connected mental healthcare system. Topics covered included ADHD, intellectual disability, psychedelic-assisted therapy, children’s mental health, psychiatric workforce diversity, and cultural safety within care.

Delegates had ample opportunities to network – from the welcome reception to meet & greet sessions, speed networking and gala dinner – and to unwind – with daily yoga and a range of other wellness activities on offer.

The sea of blue and gold sashes and beaming faces of our recent Fellows was a sight to behold at the College Ceremony, while medical students and junior doctors from our Psychiatry Interest Forum grabbed every opportunity to learn more about a career in psychiatry.

And finally, at the conclusion of the AGM, Dr Elizabeth Moore assumed the role of President, taking over from outgoing President Associate Professor Vinay Lakra.

A huge thank you to all speakers and delegates for making it such a great event. We can’t wait to see everyone in Canberra for our 2024 Congress!
