“My mission will be connected to the better recognition of ESCAP in Balkan countries, where we need to foster knowledge and skills in child and adolescent psychiatry. One of the ways how we can do this is to propose and promote international research programs, promote training to young child and adolescents psychiatrists through the ESCAP Research Academy or by offering exchange programs – for young colleagues from Balkan countries to visit developed centers for child and adolescent psychiatry in western countries, or by organizing research seminars or schools in our region. We should use science and research to increase the reputation of ESCAP and also to promote the publishing activities in this region in order to improve recognition of work in Balkan countries. I also believe that ESCAP need to promote public health implications in child and adolescent psychiatry, to be better recognized by policy makers in the EU, but also to use its reputation and influence for better recognition of youth mental health issues in local regions.”

"For the next four years I will try to get as much as possible into the access ESCAP takes to the promotion of prevention and treatment of mental health problems in young people in Europe. This is important to promote a very successful ESCAP congress from June 30 to July 3 2019, to be held in Vienna."
