This is the Congress you have been waiting for.

The theme for the 2025 Congress is Bright Lights and Big Ideas. Our theme reflects our vision for the Congress. The 2025 Congress will shine a light on new ideas that will enlighten us and facilitate the sharing of novel ideas and new developments under the bright lights of the Gold Coast. The theme also reminds us that some big ideas in psychiatry are provided with so many bright lights that we may forget to scrutinise them properly. To progress, we need to test our ideas and reject our ideologies by shining a light on them.

So, come and find the pearls of wisdom in our eminent speakers. Connect and network with your old friends and new colleagues. Join us under the bright lights and share your big ideas. We promise there will be nowhere quite as exciting as the Gold Coast in May 2025.

See you all on the GC!
