VII International Congress on Migration & Mental Health
Saturday 20thOctober 2018
In 2018, Familles du Monde proposes to address the theme 'Youth & Family's Wellbeing Matters in the Context of Migration & Mental Health' on top of the tradional Congress programme. To achieve this, we will have, this year, round tables dedicated to youth where we will address the same issues as in the Congress, but with activities adapted to youth.
Familles du Monde organises training sessions to prepare young people who want to participate in the Congress as well as seminaries for all persons interested in this Congress.
Seminars & Conferences are mainly for NGO's, teachers, social workers, parents... people who are working in Belgium.
These seminars are to introduce the mournings in the migration & the Ulysses Syndrome.
Preparation training for youth who want to participate at the Congress. One training starts in Belgium in January, once a month but there will also be other trainings in other countries (Spain, UK, Ireland, France & Italy)
Founded in 2010 by J.Achotegui (Universidad de Barcelona), R.Bennegadi (Centre Minkowska) & X.Castañeda (University of Berkeley) as a global network to provide psychological & psychosocial support to immigrants living extreme situations.
