Transforming Mental Health Services: Current trends across Europe
ENTER`s 2015 conference was hosted by the School of Nursing & Midwifery at Trinity College Dublin Ireland in collaboration with the Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing
The conference was well attended and keynote speakers included Prof Agnes Higgins who talked on “Transforming mental health care: attending to the È`s”, Ms Jacqui Dillon who spoke of “Trauma informed – the future of mental health?“ and Dr. Tim Greacen Chair of ENTER who talked about “Transforming service in Europe- Dimensions and trends”.
There was also a lively debate where the motion was “this house believes that the use of psychiatric diagnosis is an outdated concept in recovery orientated services”. Mr John Kidney and Dr Siobhan Russell argued for the motion while David Crepaz-Keay and Ian Dawson argued against. The motion was defeated!
