The course will take place from the 22nd to the 26th of May, at ICBAS, and will address content related to Public Mental Health. Registration is now open.

As part of the annual summer courses organised by the European Public Health Association (EUPHA), this year we are promoting the V Summer School in Public Mental Health, in Porto, in collaboration with Instituto de Saúde Pública da Universidade do Porto (ISPUP), Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar (ICBAS), University of Hochschule Emden/Leer (Hs-Emden-Leer), the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER), and the Mental Health Association of South-Eastern Europe (MHASEE).

“Facing the global crisis: preparing the next lessons from the pandemic and the war – Disasters, wars, and climate change from a Public Mental Health perspective”. This is the theme of this V Summer School in Public Mental Health, featuring speakers from various global institutions, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA), and the European Public Health Association (EUPHA). We also have a group of trainees from the Republic of Moldova who will take the opportunity of the Summer School to develop skills related to the reform of the Moldovan mental health system.

This course will take place at ICBAS during May 22-26 to celebrate and coincide with the European Public Health Week.

Throughout the course, we will teach content related to Public Mental Health, particularly in the context of disasters, natural disasters, and climate change, focusing on their effects on the mental health of populations. We will also explore content related to the mechanisms of action and programs for promoting mental health in adverse contexts, as well as range about the most appropriate research methodology for scientific production on the explored topic, including critical analysis of scientific articles and the development of systematic reviews and meta-analyses on the subject.
