ABOUT THE LOGO

A logo has been developed to communicate some of the intended content of the congress theme: “Psychiatry: Integrative Care for the Community”. The logo was derived from the congress location in Cape Town with its iconic Table Mountain,

as well as, the now equally iconic, Robben Island which for the purposes of the congress process represents that which still needs to be integrated in society and in psychiatric practice.

The congress will be an International Congress of the World Psychiatric Association, hosted by the South African Society of Psychiatrists, focusing on the scope of psychiatric practice

and providing integrative care for the community:

The congregating structure to mark the convening of the meeting has been derived from the WPA logo.

While the four free flying butterflies were sourced from the SASOP crest used in the logo for its meaning as heraldic symbol for the psyche and the soul.

The “blue mountain” background also presented associations with current (blue) brain mapping projects in Switzerland and the United States:

Integrative care will be derived from considering all four of its dimensions:

(1) Biological core neuroscience content and evidence-base

theme008

 

 

 

 

 

 

(2) Established psychotherapeutic process

(3) Active social involvement

(4) Within particular cultural, religious, spiritual contexts

The assembled logo for the congress therefore incorporates the notion of reconciling, transforming and integrating aspects of our communities and of our clinical psychiatric practice, in the context of some of the implied Mandela legacy.
