Fourth EUCOMS meeting in Luxembourg
The fourth EUCOMS meeting which will be held on February 8th and 9th 2018 organized side by side with the 3rd annual EU Compass Forum in Luxembourg. EUCOMS is a network of European community based mental health service providers.

This year the meeting is organized together with hosts from Luxembourg: Centre Hospitalier Neuro-Psychiatrique (CHNP), a hospital specialized in psychiatric rehabilitation. Together with the host country we highlight a specific theme: ‘Reaching Out to Society’.

EUCOMS would like to invite participants to:
Share knowledge and experience related to the theme: ‘Reaching Out to Society’ using an example from Luxembourg. In Luxemburg 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 the cracks not receiving the right, or any care. In Luxembourg they develop community mental health care ‘tools’ to reach more people in the community providing them with the support they need. 

  • Discuss the operationalisation of the fundamental principles and the key elements of community based mental health care outlined in the Consensus Paper.

The meeting will be partly interactive and participants are encouraged to provide input. In this way, we hope to create an open environment where people can connect, brainstorm and come to valuable insights, conclusions and partnerships.

In the spirit of one of the networks’ main values ”nothing about us without us” we strongly encourage you to invite a peer expert to participate in the meeting.

We very much hope to welcome you at this fourth EUCOMS meeting and we appreciate receiving the confirmation of your participation by December 22nd.
