The International Mental Health festival | Psychology Fest

The International Mental Health festival

During the International Mental Health Festival that will take place for the first time 23-27 september 2019, mental health will be put under a spotlight in Amsterdam, Maastricht, London and Liverpool. This inaugural event presents a wide range of workshops, lectures, panel discussions, meetups and more. These will be organised at various locations throughout the four cities for the general public, students, expats, carers and professionals. The International Mental Health Festival aims to provide its visitors with a perceptive insight and facts on what they can do for themselves and their beloved ones to stay mentally healthy, informs about the healthcare system, helps identify when professional support is needed and where to find the right care at the right time. In this way it acts in a preventive and protective manner and guides towards early interventions. The International Mental Health Festival is an easily accessible and above all a nice way to get acquainted with mental health and everything that is related to it.
