Positive Health at Mental Health conference EAOF – Leuven

Machteld Huber was touching hearts with her personal story and start of ‘Positive Health in the Netherlands’, during her keynote presentation on the EAOF conference in Leuven, Belgium. The central theme of this conference was: Implementation of community mental health services: making it happen.

The paradigm shift from disease oriented care towards health oriented care by seeing the person as a whole. In the workshop from GP Karolien van den Brekel, from Utrecht, GP, Geert Pint from Leuven and social workers Elke Plovie and Sylvia Hubar, was a lot of interest from colleagues in community and mental care from a variety of European countries, especially the exercises to practice with own reflection on health and a case where the collaboration was put central were insightful, especially how Positive Health is a common language to be used for people with social, physical and mental challenges in communities.
