Fundació Catalana Síndrome de Down will be holding an international conference on mental health and intellectual disability on 21-22 October 2020 to further learning about the main mental health issues faced by people with intellectual disabilities, including their diagnosis and treatment.

We hope to use the conference to expand our knowledge of mental health issues in people with intellectual disabilities, including prevalence data, the specificities of drug-based and psychotherapy-based treatments, and different ways of addressing mental health needs in social and educational contexts, including provision of support and counseling for families, carers, and other reference persons. Mental health care providers (psychologists and psychiatrists) and other related professions (including educationalists, teachers, and social workers, among others) are invited to submit scientific posters for presentation at the conference.


· The deadline for submitting poster proposals has been extended to 30 September 2020. Acceptance or rejection will be announced on 7 October.

· Posters must be of a scientific or technical nature and submissions must include title, all author names names, and full affiliations.

· Posters may be submitted in Spanish, or English.

· At least one author must be registred as a conference participant.

· For the acceptance of a poster, it’s necessary to send two different documents. On the one hand, the poster must be sent in PDF format (download template) and, on the other hand, a video lasting 2/3 minutes in AVI or MP4 format in wich it’s explained briefly the content of the poster itself.
