The Section of General Practice - Institute of Public Health in collaboration with Global Doctors invite you all to join the Symposium on primary mental health care.

Mental health care demands are increasing and it needs a health system response. Strengthening primary mental health care is a feasible way to shorten the diagnosis and treatment gap. The purpose of this symposium is to broaden the vision of mental health care and the need of collaborative work across sectors. We will learn about experiences and interventions that have resulted in multidisciplinary health professional synergy for earlier diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders and better health outcomes.
