In addition, PsykOpp has over thirty years' experience in organising other conferences and training courses within the mental health field.
PsykOpp has three main areas of operation: publishing house; courses and conferences; information and education.
The Foundation is based in Stavanger on the West coast of Norway, but has a national and partly international profile.
