Third EUCOMS meeting in Hamburg
We are pleased to invite our members to the third EUCOMS meeting which will be held on the 12th of September 2017 as a preconference for the EAOF conference in Hamburg. The meeting will take place at the University of Hamburg.
This year we organise the meeting with hosts from Germany, Dachverband Gemeinde Psychiatry, the German association of regional mental health centres, and the University of Hamburg. Together with the host country we highlight a specific theme: ‘Collaboration Between Community Outreach Teams and Hospitals’.
In line with the previous two EUCOMS meetings we aim to work on the promotion, support, monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of community based mental health care (CMHC) in Europe and beyond. Participants are invited to:
- Visit (community) mental health care services in Hamburg
- Share knowledge and experiences when implementing CMHC in relation to the theme: ‘Collaboration Between Community Outreach Teams and Hospitals’
- Jointly make a start with the development of a strategy to promote, support, monitor and evaluate the implementation of quality CMHC in Europe based on the consensus document
- Discuss the networks’ strategy
We organise the event in an ‘open space’ format which means that we present the topics to discuss across the room where 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 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.
