11th European Congress Mental Health in Intellectual Disability, Luxembourg 2017
‘Better Mental Health for People with Intellectual Disability’
Providing better care using knowledge transfer and bringing together innovative collaborative networks
September 21-23, 2017 | Luxembourg, European Convention Center EAMHID and University of Luxembourg (Dept. Inside)
In cooperation with APEMH Foundation


In close collaboration with our host and the local partner APEMH Foundation, together with the University of Luxembourg, and with the support of the European network ARFIE, we look forward to welcoming you to one of the most idyllic capitals of Europe, a linchpin in the building of the European community.

We aim to provide a platform for all stakeholders, promoting a constructive interaction between the results of current research, innovative practice and professional training initiatives. We will also contribute to fostering dialogue that supports the values that unite us: better conditions of living, working and sharing for those involved in support work and interventions for mental health. An ideal meeting place, a place of multiculturalism par excellence, Luxembourg facilitates dialogue and exchange through simultaneous translation from English into French and German for all plenary sessions and numerous workshops and symposiums.

The organization of this international congress will be the perfect opportunity for the APEMH Foundation to kick off the festivities commemorating the 50th anniversary of its creation. The opportunity also to highlight its ongoing commitment to European partnerships and exchange in support of its sustained campaign for a better quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities; which includes improved access to mental health services.

Save the date now for this meeting from 21 to 23 September 2017 and prepare for bringing together our unique expertise with new ideas and debate in developing our future practice.
We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon in Luxembourg!
