Eυρωπαικη Εκπαιδευτική Συνάντηση GAMIAN με θέμα: Προς μια νοητική (ή ψυχική) και νευρολογική Υγεία

GAMIAN-Europe Annual Educational Convention: 22nd-23rd September 2011, Brussels Thon City Centre Hotel

Theme: towards mental and neurological health

There is a need to have a discussion on mental health and the brain. These two are often regarded as separate aspects, but this is not the case; physical aspects impact on social aspects, and vice versa. It is important to bring all these aspects together and to focus on the integrative rather than on the separate parts.
The Gamian board decided to dedicate the 2011 Annual Educational Convention on this topic, bringing all stakeholders together to promote a harmonised discussion.

Choosing Brussels as the venue gives the opportunity to integrate the Autumn session of the MEP interest group on Mental Health, Well Being and the Brain.(Sept 22nd 2011) In cooperation with European Brain Council. 

On the evening of the 22nd September the GAMIAN-Europe Good Practice Award and the GAMIAN-Europe Award will be presented.
