visitors annually

Welcome to Scandinavia's largest and longest-running multi-disciplinary mental health conference!

Welcome to Schizofrenidagene 2022 - Becoming oneself.

This year we'll be focusing on personality. How does one become oneself? What are the factors that promote healthy personality development? What can cause personality development to go off track? What can cause us problems in relating to others, expressing and regulating ourselves, and lead to personality problems and disorders? How can we create meaningful, effective treatments that promote growth and recovery?

The most prominent national and international experts will be joining us to shed light on the matter.  Hope you'll be joining us too!
