CALL FOR SPONSORING ISPS CONFERENCE 2019

Living in a city more than doubles your chances of being diagnosed with schizophrenia while migrants and their children are one to twelve times more likely to be considered psychotic.

Why? Is there a link and if so what can we do about it?

This 21st International ISPS Congress focusses on the relationship between psychosis, life in a big city, migrant backgrounds and cultural transitions. The four day programme will have interesting speakers and various practical workshops.

In addition to scientists and healthcare workers there will be many people attending the conference who have experienced a psychosis along with their family members. They will pay tickets a greatly reduced price for their tickets. Many people who come from low-income countries will also be participating and that is why it is necessary to ask for sponsorship.
