Call for abstract EAOF conference
Updated: Feb 21
We are very happy to announce that the 6th Conference on Assertive Outreach (EAOF 2023) will take place in Leuven, Belgium from Wednesday 20 September until Friday 22 September 2023. The theme of this three-day international event in the beautiful city of Leuven is
Implementation of community mental health services: making it happen!
An international group of excellent speakers will provide examples of a state-of-the art of building up of community services in different countries. We choose this specific theme, since many of us struggle with the implementation of recovery-focused community mental health services, including collaboration between medical/psychiatric and social services as well as involving significant others in the treatment process. During the conference, in workshops and symposia you will be able to discuss these issues and processes needed to effectively (re)allocate resources in order to implement better mental health and social services for all. The presentations about implementing a public-health approach in deinstitutionalizing mental health care as well as implementation of community mental health services will be based on scientific evidence, professional knowledge and experience, as well as knowledge based on peer expertise. You are cordially invited to come to Belgium, where mental healthcare is being deinstitutionalized and community services are built up in high speed. The conference will take place in the beautiful city of Leuven, home of the KU Leuven (founded in 1425), and also home to several clinical innovative interventions for people with mental disorders.
