Dear Colleagues,

The first Psychopharmacology Treatment Updates Meeting of the Association of Psychopharmacology was held in Antalya in 2008 and continued on a regular basis and repeated every two years. The update meetings of our association were suspended after 2012 due to the international congresses being held every year. In 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic process affecting the whole world and our country 12. International Psychopharmacology Congress and 8. International Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology Symposium could not be held and our congress was postponed to be held in Antalya on 17-20 November 2021. For this reason, regarding our association ;It was decided to continue the Treatment Updates Meetings on an international platform and online with remote access..
