Welcome to Oslo 2018!


Dear friends of HPH,

We have the honor of hosting the first ever Nordic Conference which will be held at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Oslo, Norway, September 19th-21st, 2018.

The main theme of the Nordic Conference 2018 is:

Together for mental health

The focus will be on positive mental health promotion. This is the first HPH Conference organized within the Nordic context. The conference is hosted by the Norwegian HPH network but anyone working within healthcare, as well as students, school staff, politicians, volunteer organizations and those collaborating within the community are welcome!

One of several interesting keynote speakers will be Vibeke Koushede, senior researcher at the Danish National Institute for Public Health. We will also be joined by a speaker from Norway who will talk about the correlation between mental health and somatic health. The importance of ABC for health within minority groups will also be discussed.

The Nordic Conference will open Wednesday afternoon, September 19th and close Friday, September 21st after lunch.

Please continue to check back for updates and more information on abstract submission, early-bird registration and conference details.
