Third EU Mental Health Compass Forum Luxembourg, 8-9 February 2018


About the Conference

The third Annual EU Compass Forum on Mental Health and Well-being will be held in Luxembourg on 8-9 February 2018. This event is aimed at diverse stakeholders such as policy makers and Member State representatives, non-governmental stakeholders from advocacy groups and care organisations, as well as mental health care providers, professionals, and service users. The purpose of the Forum is to discuss the implementation of policy recommendations of the Joint Action European Framework for Action on Mental Health and Well-being and the outcomes of activities related to the work of the EU Compass during 2017-2018.

The focus of this third EU Compass Forum will be providing community-based mental health services and developing integrated approaches to governance, which is often referred to as mental health in all policies. In line with this, an EU Compass scientific paper will be presented and both days include interactive break-out sessions to discuss the key topics. Moreover, the results of the annual EU Compass surveys regarding the activities of member States and stakeholders in mental health will also be analysed.

Organisers: Consortium led by the Trimbos Institute in the Netherlands together with the NOVA University of Lisbon, the Finnish Association for Mental Health and EuroHealthNet under the EU Health Programme (2014-2020) in the frame of a service contract with the Consumer, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (Chafea) acting under the mandate from the European Commission.
