European Federation of Associations of Families of Persons with Mental Illness (EUFAMI)

A PERFECT VISION FOR MENTAL HEALTH 2020

EUFAMI is hosting a major European conference in Dublin on Friday, 24th May 2013. It will be co-hosted by Shine. The conference will take place in Ireland at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dublin Airport.

EUFAMI is holding this conference as part of a series of events to mark the association’s 20th Anniversary. The conference will briefly look back on how the family and carer movement has developed across Europe over the past 20 years. But it will mainly concentrate on how and what developments can be expected by families and carers over the coming years, which appear likely to be dominated by a continuing economic downturn across most of Europe and reductionsin government budgets for national mental health services. The conference will be based around four major themes – empowerment of families and carers, partnership in practice, education and quality information and the impact of caring on families and the health issues which they encounter.

Who should attend?

The congress will be of interest to all family members and persons with self experience, as well as all members of the medical and social services professions who practice or have an interest in the area of community psychiatric services.

Programme

The conference will take place over one day, Friday, 24th May 2013 and will comprise of a plenary session, a roundtable discussion and interactive sessions. The conference will close with the release of the Dublin Declaration and Call for Action. Full details of the programme are available from the EUFAMI website http://www.eufami.org
