International Mental Health Congress 18 – 19 July 2017: A Report


International Mental Health Congress

                  18 & 19 July 2017  All Nations Centre, Cardiff          .     

We had two inspiring days togerther at our International Mental Health Congress. Partnering with the IMHCN we designed an agenda that explored the 'whole person, whole life, whole systems' approach to mental health. This was a significant event that brought together experts on the Whole Life-Whole Systems approach from Wales, England and the international community. We had representatives joining us from Australia, Poland, Italy, Ireland, Malaysia and the USA. There were many opportunities to take part in plenary sessions, participatory masterclasses and network with professionals.
