Reaching Out to Society
Save the date for the fourth EUCOMS meeting with the theme Reaching Out to Society which will be organized in Luxembourg together with Marc Graas and Mark Ritzen, both directors of Centre Hospitalier Neuro-Psychiatrique (CHNP), a hospital specialized in psychiatric rehabilitation in Ettelbruck.
In Luxembourg, there is a great distance between the psychiatric institutions and the citizens. Networks providing care in the community do not function properly reflected in long waiting times and the complex cases that fall between two stools not receiving the right, or any care. The theme Reaching Out to Society refers to their project in collaboration with the University of Luxembourg aiming to fill this gap and to develop community mental health care ‘tools’ to reach more people in the community providing them with the support they need.
Besides highlighting this theme, we would like to explore how the implementation and outcomes of community mental health care can be evaluated and used to improve care within Europe.
The EU Compass for Action on Mental Health and Well-being
The fourth EUCOMS meeting will be organized side by side with the 3rd annual EU Compass Forum and will take place in Luxembourg on the 8th and 9th of February 2018.
