Full coverage of the EPA Forum 2020 available on the video below.
First introduced in 2015, the EPA Forum traditionally precedes the official opening of the annual European Congress of Psychiatry. The Forum brings together EPA members and congress delegates with European organisations, stakeholders and policy makers, in the field of mental health and mental health care, to present and discuss matters of European importance.
The 2020 edition of the EPA Forum will see the active participation of the patient organisation GAMIAN-Europe (EPA Board member), in addition to different policy makers and mental health experts from the EU and international organisations working in the field of mental health.
This year’s programme focuses on the consequences of the Covid-19 outbreak on mental health care, and its medium- and long-term impact on practices and collaboration between health and mental health work forces at the EU-level.
