ENTER Conference 2022

The experiences of the transition from mental health inpatient settings to community care in Europe


ENTER held its annual conference online on the 30th of June 2022.  The objective of ENTER was that the conference would be face to face, but in the uncertain climate surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it forced us to make alternative plans with the conference moving online. Videos and presentations from the conference are posted below with video links to the keynote presentations and PDF files for presentations in the concurrent sessions.
