Lille Network Meeting 2019

THE SIXTH MEETING OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY BASED MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE PROVIDERS (EUCOMS) NETWORK

The Sixth EUCOMS meeting was held on June 13th and 14th in Lille. The meeting was hosted by the EPSM Lille Metropole, a community based mental health service. The main theme of the meeting was 'Human rights, the foundation of Community Mental health care'. The EUCOMS Consensus Paper states that the focus on human rights is a fundamental principle in community mental health care and recommends that services base their vision on the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. EPSM Lille Metropole is a front runner in this domain and have, for example, assessed their service using the WHO Quality Rights Tool kit.

The goals / objectives of this meeting were:

• Introducing EUCOMS: a mental health network to improve mental health services among
professionals, users and families.
• Sharing knowledge, evaluating services, shaping new solutions for old problems
• Exploring the implications for human rights as the foundation of community mental health Care
• Evaluating the state of the art in Europe
