Reaching out together
3rd European Congress on Assertive Outreach
Assertive outreach is done by teams or services to reach persons with severe mental illness who are not themselves able to seek help or need intensivation of treatment and care to prevent crisis or admission. The aim is to support the person in fulfilling their goals, coping with the illness and achieving recovery and a meaningful life in the community. The person and his network are the key collaborators for the services.
The aim of the Third European Congress on Assertive Outreach is to let us all share how we may be REACHING OUT TOGETHER to fulfill these goals, and to inspire us to continue developing assertive ways of working towards recovery.
The congress is also the 12th Conference of The Nordic Clinical Case Management Network and the 2015 Conference of the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Concurrent Substance Abuse and Mental Health Disorders in collaboration with other Scandinavian dual diagnosis networks.
