Organiser: Dutch International Mental Health Hub

Webinar date: 11th of June 13.00-14.00 CET


Dear colleague,

We hereby invite you to our upcoming Webinar hosted by the Dutch International Mental Health Hub which will take place on the 11th of June 13.00-14.00 CET followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with the speakers. This time we will explore an international perspective on the integrated and multi-sectoral mental health care.

Mark this Webinar as a moment for education, inspiration and connecting with your international colleagues! If you think this would be interesting for someone else as well, please feel free to share.


How can mental health be seen from an integrated and multi-sectoral approach? Why is this important, what are other countries doing when it comes to integrated and multi-sectoral mental health systems? Most importantly, how can it improve care for service users?


We are honoured to go into these questions with following speakers:
