wasad introduces itself

The WORLD ASSOCIATION FOR STRESS-RELATED AND ANXIETY DISORDERS, WASAD, is an independent non-profit organization founded in 2016 by leaders of clinical and translational science.

The reasons for this are:

Stress and disease sequelae related to stress and trauma as well as anxiety disorders represent an ever growing social problem and cause psychological distress affecting professional life, lifestyle and quality of life. These diseases are now one of the most common causes of work absences and thus have direct social consequences affecting not only affected persons but also the social environment.

Poster and oral abstract submissions are open until 26th May 2017!

25 presentation slots are still available and will be selected among submitted abstracts
