Social programme

The congress organizers are already looking forward to bringing Dutch hospitality closer to all delegates through numerous social events.

Find out more below.

Young Professionals Programme

The Young Professionals (YP) Programme is aimed at professionals younger than 40 years of age.
The YP programme promises to be a vibrant program aimed at networking with senior colleagues and potential mentors and having voices heard as emerging leaders in women's mental health.

As part of the YP programme, we are organizing a mentorship coffee event during the conference. Selected YP’s will be matched with senior mentors.

Each YP will be asked to select 1-2 mentors. YP’s will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their areas of interest with the mentor over a cup of coffee.
To be eligible, you should have a presentation at the conference and should be a registered delegate.
We hope to select 20 YPs for this Conversation over Coffee programme.


Opening Ceremony + Informal drinks

The Congress will be opened with an opening ceremony on the 6th November 2022 in the MECC, Maastricht, the congress venue. Following the ceremony, a drinks reception will take place allowing all delegates to relax and get to know one another.

Attendance is free of charge for all fully registered congress delegates, accompanying persons, exhibitors and sponsors.

You can have dinner in the city centre in one of the many fantastic restaurants Maastricht has to offer. You can find a list here.
Make sure to book your table in advance as Sunday evening is a popular day for eating out.
