EFPC Webinar series 2022 | Main Theme 2022: “Primary Care and the Patient Perspective”
Webinar: The role of Primary Care in community mental health
30th November 2022 | 19-20:30h CET
Chaired by Dineke Smit (EFPC) and Rene Keet (EUCOMS)
Primary care is in the heart of community mental health care. Primary Care professionals have important roles in referring patients to specialized mental health services, providing integrated care for physical and mental health for co-existing conditions (e.g. diabetes and depression) and to serve as the linking pin between specialized care, primary care and social services. See also the EFPC position paper on mental health.
Therefore, EFPC is happy to collaborate with EUCOMS (The European Community Mental Health Service providers network). We are strongly connected and have a Memorandum of Understanding. We recommend reading their consensus paper with a vision of a network approach in community mental health care.
In a joint webinar both networks will shine a light on an ecosystem approach to mental health in primary care.
