The 28th EPA Congress 2020 is taking place in Madrid on March 28th-31st.
**This event has been postponed due to Coronavirus concerns and travel restrictions. We will post an update with the new congress dates once confirmed.
The theme of this year’s conference is “The Shared Heritage of European Psychiatry” and will focus on sharing knowledge around treating complex disorders, practical know-how, techniques, and guidance around clinical challenges to improve health outcomes for patients and the people who care for them.
In just a few weeks, the RECOVER-E project will be represented by Dr. Laura Shields-Zeeman (Netherlands, Project Leader for RECOVER-E), Dr. Julian Beezhold (United Kingdom), Dr. Jana Chihai (Moldova), Dr. Antoni Novotni (North Macedonia), and Guadalupe Morales (Spain). The workshop will give an overview of progress in implementing community-based mental health services in light of the call for policy and service development from the European Commission, WHO, and UN Sustainable Development Goals. The team will also discuss achievements and lessons learned to-date, updates on the training and embedding of peer workers into mobile teams, and the impact that introducing home visits in North Macedonia and Croatia has had on these countries’ mental health systems.
The RECOVER-E workshop will take place on Tuesday March 31st at 8:00 – 9:00. For more details about the congress, please visit EPA’s website here.
