Scientific Committee

The International Mental Health Congress (IMHC) will take place 28th-30th April 2015 in Lille, France at the Lille Grand Palais Conference Center. The IMHC will focus on "Mental Health for All: Connecting People and Sharing Experience". The agenda will include the status of cutting edge research in the field of holistic care for patients with mental health conditions.

For this meeting, plenary speakers will share their views on promoting public awareness of mental health including anti-stigma interventions, advocacy for mental and physical health parity of care for mental health service users, and implementation of the Global Mental Health Action Plan.

In addition, we encourage submission of proposals for panel sessions as well as oral and poster presentations that focus on working across primary, secondary, tertiary and social care settings, particularly those describing care teams and policy makers understanding their roles in the delievery of mental health services. We welcome innovative work that looks at specific obstacles as well as opportunities.

Working together, we are poised to succeed in promoting mental health innovations, service re-design and the improvement of the treatment we can offer to our patients, so that they can enjoy more meaningful lives. We hope to engage you in discussion of how we can support such an integrated approach to mental health throughout the world.

The aims of the congress are

- To support an integrated approach to mental health globally.
- To support the up skilling of primary care and promote the notion of "skill mix" in the delivery of mental health interventions.
- To support joint psychiatric and primary care dialogue and training.
- To support the implementation of the WHO Global Mental Health action plan.
