SPONSOR OPROEP ISPS CONGRES 2019

Leven in een stad meer dan verdubbelt de kans om de diagnose schizofrenie te krijgen terwijl migranten en hun kinderen een tot zesmaal zo grote kans hebben om psychotisch te worden bevonden. Waarom, is er een verband en wat kunnen we eraan doen?

 

Het 21e Internationale congres van de ISPS is gericht op de relatie tussen psychose, het leven in de grote stad, migratieachtergrond en culturele transities. Het vierdaagse programma brengt boeiende sprekers en vele praktische workshops.

Behalve wetenschappers en hulpverleners zullen veel mensen die zelf een psychose hebben doorgemaakt  en hun familieleden deelnemen. Zij betalen een sterk gereduceerd tarief. Ook vele  mensen uit lage lonen landen zullen participeren. Vandaar dat wij genoodzaakt zijn sponsoring  te vragen.

ISPS CONGRESS 2019 STRANGER IN THE CITY: the highlights

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?
