It is our pleasure to welcome all professionals involved in public health aspects of mental health to the 2nd International Public Mental Health Conference, of the section of public health of the European Public Health Association (EUPHA), to be held in Jerusalem, Israel, June 19-21, 2019.
Public mental health is a way of viewing psychiatry, mental health and well-being through the needs of the community, the public resources available to meet those needs, and a call for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and other mental health experts, as well as epidemiologists and policy planners to rally together to meet those need.
The first Public Mental Health (PMH) congress was held in Vilnius, Lithuania in 2017. In recent decades, public mental health has become a cornerstone in the field of public health. Most excitingly public mental health addresses the conditions ranking high among the top causes of global burden of disease.
Community factors are increasingly understood as critical factors in the development and the maintenance of mental disorders and mental health. The theme of our conference will be RESILIENCE AND RECOVERY. This is highly relevant not only for our professionals but also for the public. Renowned scientists from many countries of the world will present the most recent research and discuss these topics.
We cordially invite you to participate and contribute to this exciting conference in Jerusalem!
See you in Jerusalem 2019!
