This year the International Mental Health Festival is being organized for the first time. The festival takes place from 24 to 26 September in the cities of Liverpool, Amsterdam, London and Maastricht. The International Mental Health Festival focuses on finding the right care, at the right time, with the right insurance. By means of films, panel discussions, lectures and workshops, we want to create awareness, beat stigma and create an accessible place to discover this theme.

Young Brain College pays attention to the psychological problems of young people. Prof. Bart Rutten and Prof. Thérèse van Amelsvoort will give this lecture about the young adolescent brain and the latest developments in their field.
There is much to gain from urban mental health research. Urban living is on the rise: more than 50 percent of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas,
a proportion that is expected to rise to 66 percent by 2050. Urban environments are characterized by features that make city life not only economically attractive and exciting,
but also more challenging and stressful than rural environments (‘urban stress’), which influences mental health. Therefore, the research area benefits
society with joint approaches to new interventions and policy making towards the promotion of mental health.
