On behalf of the ENMESH Executive Committee and the Local Organising Committee, it is a great pleasure to invite you to participate on the 13th ENMESH International Conference that will take place in Lisbon between June 6 and 8, 2019.

1: Mental health care, from theory to outcome
2: Managing systemic complexity
3: Access inequities
4: Cross-cultural learning in mental health

To address these different themes we already have an impressive and diverse scientific group of key-note speakers:

Martin Knapp (UK)
Benedetto Saraceno (Italy)
Pim Cuijpers (Netherlands)

Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, is well suited to host the ENMESH Conference. It is well known by its culture, history and scenic beauty. It is currently a very international city and one of the most visited in Europe. 

A large number of international students and professionals participating in internships and in exchange with Portuguese universities have currently come to make Lisbon its home.

Finally, June is also the month of the city, with plenty of indoors and outdoors events taking place.

Following the tradition of previous ENMESH meetings, we are organizing a scientific meeting that will surely meet your expectations, and an unforgettable social programme.

If you are not already on our mailing list and want to be updated on future developments, please contact us.


We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon,
