TCI Asia Pacific Plenary in Bali, August 2018
TCI Asia Pacific plenaries are held every 2 years. They form an important space for new and old member country DPOs and individuals (where no DPO exists yet), from Asia (and now Pacific, too!) to come together, learn and share, building a regional vision and advocacy actions together. 21 countries participated in the Bali Plenary from 26-29 August 2018, at Hotel Ayodhya, Nusa Dua.
TCI Asia Pacific is back from a super exciting “Classic Edition”

We renamed ourselves as “TCI Asia Pacific”,and we will cover the South Asia, South East Asia and Pacific regions.
We adopted new countries(Maldives, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Fiji, Tonga, East Timor, HongKong) as members.
As a way of responding to the forthcoming International mental health week, and showing our concern about the medical psychiatric expansion throughout our region, increasing the “global burden of barriers” for us, we adopted the “Bali Declaration”.
