Schizophrenia symptoms can be categorized into three main groups

Positive Symptoms: These reflect an excess or distortion of normal functioning and include hallucinations (false perceptions), delusions (false beliefs), disorganized thinking and speech, and agitation.

Negative Symptoms: These involve a decrease or loss of normal functioning and include reduced emotional expression, social withdrawal, anhedonia (inability to experience pleasure), and a lack of motivation.

Cognitive Symptoms: Individuals with schizophrenia may experience difficulties with attention, memory, and executive functions such as decision-making and problem-solving.

Track 7: Personality Disorders

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions characterized by enduring patterns of behavior, cognition, and inner experience that deviate markedly from the expectations of the individual's culture. These patterns typically begin in adolescence or early adulthood and lead to significant distress or impairment in various areas of life, including relationships, work, and self-identity. There are several distinct types of personality disorders, each with its own set of defining features and characteristics.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after a person experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. These events may include combat, sexual assault, natural disasters, accidents, or other life-threatening situations. PTSD can affect individuals of all ages and backgrounds, and its symptoms can be severe and disruptive to daily life.

PTSD symptoms can be categorized into four main clusters

Re-Experiencing Symptoms: Individuals may have flashbacks, nightmares, or distressing thoughts related to the traumatic event.

Avoidance Symptoms: People with PTSD often avoid reminders of the trauma, including places, people, or activities.

Negative Changes in Mood and Cognition: This cluster involves persistent negative emotions, self-blame, difficulty remembering the traumatic event, and distorted thoughts about oneself or the world.

Arousal and Reactivity Symptoms: Individuals may be easily startled, have difficulty sleeping or concentrating, and may exhibit irritable or aggressive behavior.

Track 10: Neuroimaging in Psychiatry

Neuroimaging in psychiatry refers to the use of various imaging techniques to visualize and study the structure and function of the brain in individuals with psychiatric disorders. These imaging methods provide valuable insights into the neurobiological underpinnings of mental health conditions and have contributed to our understanding of their causes, effects, and treatment.

Track 11: Neurotransmitters Disorder

Neurotransmitter disorders, also known as neurotransmitter imbalances or dysregulations, refer to conditions in which there is an abnormality in the production, release, reception, or clearance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that play a crucial role in transmitting signals between nerve cells (neurons) and are essential for normal brain function. When there is a disruption in the balance of neurotransmitters, it can lead to various neurological and psychiatric symptoms.

Here are some important neurotransmitter disorders

  • Neurological Disorders
  • Neuroplasticity
  • Biological Basis of Behavior

Track 14: Psychiatric Medications

Psychiatric medications, also known as psychotropic medications or psychoactive drugs, are prescribed to treat various mental health conditions and psychiatric disorders. These medications work by affecting neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers in the brain that play a role in mood, emotions, thoughts, and behavior. The choice of medication depends on the specific diagnosis and individual factors, such as the patient's symptoms, medical history, and response to treatment.

Track 15: Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a medical procedure used primarily to treat severe and treatment-resistant mental health conditions, particularly mood disorders such as major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. ECT involves the controlled administration of electrical currents to the brain, inducing a brief seizure. While the exact mechanisms of ECT are not fully understood, it is believed to influence neurotransmitter activity and promote changes in brain chemistry that can alleviate symptoms of certain psychiatric disorders.

Track 16: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive medical procedure used to treat certain mental health conditions, primarily major depressive disorder (MDD) and, in some cases, other psychiatric and neurological disorders. TMS involves the use of electromagnetic coils to deliver focused magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain. These magnetic pulses can influence neuronal activity and have therapeutic effects on various brain functions.

Track 17: Addiction Medicine

Addiction medicine is a medical specialty focused on the prevention, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of individuals struggling with substance use disorders (SUDs) and other forms of addiction.

  • Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a clinical term used to describe a range of conditions related to substance abuse, from mild to severe. It is characterized by a cluster of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms indicating that an individual continues using a substance despite significant substance-related problems.
  • Common substances of abuse include alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, opioids, stimulants (e.g., cocaine, methamphetamine), and various prescription medications.

Mental Illness (Mental Health Disorders)

  • Mental illness refers to a wide range of conditions that affect a person's thinking, mood, emotions, and behavior. These conditions can significantly impair a person's ability to function in daily life.
  • Common mental health disorders include depression, anxiety disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders (e.g., anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa).

Track 19: Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

Alcoholism, also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a chronic condition characterized by an individual's inability to control their alcohol consumption despite adverse consequences. Drug addiction, or substance use disorder (SUD), is a chronic condition characterized by the compulsive use of drugs, including illicit substances and prescription medications, despite harmful consequences.

Common Symptoms of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

Physical dependence (experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not drinking), tolerance (needing more alcohol to achieve the desired effect), neglecting personal or professional responsibilities due to drinking, and continued alcohol use despite its negative impact on relationships and health. Loss of control over drug use, withdrawal symptoms when not using, tolerance, neglect of responsibilities, and continued drug use despite negative consequences.

Track 20: Neuropsychiatry

As the name implies, the focus of the medical specialty known as neuropsychiatry is on psychiatry as it relates to neurology. The focus is on examining and managing patients' cognitive and behavioral symptoms who also have neurological diseases. Neuropsychiatry is a branch of research and medicine that focuses on the treatment of people with neurologically based disorders as well as the integrated study of psychiatric and neurological conditions. Neuropsychiatry, a branch of science that supports neuroscience, is used to explore the treatment and care of people with neurological problems, particularly those that affect behavior, and to better understand the neurological basis of mental and neurologic disorders.

Track 21: Emergency & Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is a field of psychiatry that deals with the assessment and treatment of mentally disordered offenders and criminals. It is an interface between mental health & Psychiatry. Emergency psychiatry is the application of psychiatry in emergency. The conditions requiring psychiatric interventions may include substance abuse, attempted suicide, psychosis, depression violence & other abnormal behaviors. Forensic psychiatry is like criminology, which encompasses the interface between law and psychiatry including gracious, criminal, remedial, administrative, or authoritative things, and in specialized clinical discussions in zones such as chance appraisal or employment.

Track 22: Child and Adolescent Mental Health

The field of psychiatry known as child and adolescent psychiatry, often known as pediatric psychiatry, focuses on the identification, management, and prevention of mental illnesses in children, adolescents, and their families. It looks at the biopsychosocial factors that affect the onset, progression, and treatment outcomes of psychiatric diseases and various approaches. Psychotherapy and/or medication are the main treatments used by child and adolescent psychiatrists to address mental illnesses in the pediatric population.

Many methods for treating various patients with a variety of issues, such as

  • Autism and learning disabilities
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Neuro-developmental issues that appear in childhood
  • Tic disorders
  • Behavioural and emotional issues
  • Disruptive actions
  • Issues with eating and using the lavatory
  • Depression
  • Reaction to trauma or life adjustment (such as domestic abuse)
  • Anxiety and OCD

Track 23: Research work and Case studies on Psychiatry and Mental Health

In comparison with many other medical disorders, psychiatric disorders are poorly understood and better treatments are needed. These disorders can be the outcome of many different kinds of experiences in a person's life, from early childhood to later life events. So there is a need for research in psychiatry because of the scale of mental health problems, the challenges of an ageing population and age-associated psychiatric disorders and the fact that, Rehabilitation is really necessary in psychiatry.

  • Ethical Issues in Mental Health Research
  • Population Based Study
  • Risks and Benefits
  • Post-Trial Obligations

Track 24: Addiction Psychiatry

A medical specialisation of psychiatry called addiction psychiatry focuses on assessing, diagnosing, and treating persons who have one or more illnesses connected to addiction. The technique used in addiction medicine is more psychosocial. Focus is placed on identifying and treating mental diseases that coexist with addiction, regardless of whether they were the addiction's primary cause or an effect. Addiction psychiatry takes physical health into account in the same way that addiction medicine does.

In addition to treating the addiction, professionals want to help their patients get better or keep their physical health.

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin and prescription opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines / Methamphetamine
  • Cannabis
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Tobacco

Track 25: Cross-cultural psychiatry

A subspecialty of psychology called "cross-cultural psychiatry" looks at how cultural and racial factors influence mental illness and access to psychiatric care. The study of migratory populations and ethnic variety within countries, analysis of psychiatry itself as a cultural product, and surveys of the prevalence and types of disorders in other cultures or countries all contributed to the development of this profession as a whole. Early literature was linked to colonialism and was accused of either ignoring or demeaning other cultures and ethnic groups.

Several crucial fields of research include

  • Emotions
  • Language acquisition
  • Child development
  • Personality
  • Social behavior
  • Family and social relationships
