Keynote speaker #1
Steve Appleton is the Managing Director of Contact Consulting, a UK specialist consultancy and research practice working at the intersection of health, housing and social care. Steve Appleton originally has been trained as a social worker and his work concentrates on the needs for people with mental health problems, substance misuse, learning disability and offender health. He is the author of a range of UK national guidance and best practice documents and has played a leading role in recent population based Thrive mental health initiatives in cities across the UK. Steve Appleton also facilitates the work of the I-CIRCLE collaborative, which brings together cities from around the world on work related to population public mental health improvement and prevention in cities and urban regions.
Steve Appleton will give a keynote presentation on 'urban mental health'. He will explore the origins of the population based public mental health movement in cities and its importance to a coordinated public health effort to create change. He will share examples of how different cities have approached this work, including the different frameworks used and outcomes achieved. His presentation will describe the features that contribute to success and how, through the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership, collaboration is being supported and how learning is being shared between cities and countries.
Keynote speaker #2
Dr Wilma Waterlander is a senior researcher at the department of Public Health at Amsterdam UMC - location AMC. She coordinates the LIKE (formerly known as Healthy Habits) project. LIKE is a 5-year project focusing on creating a healthy lifestyle amongst 10-14 year old adolescents in minority groups in Amsterdam using a whole-of-systems approach.
Dr Wilma Waterlander will give a keynote presentation about a 'healthy living environment'. Whole-of-systems approaches, community approaches, healthy cities... Everyone will have heard about these terms. But what do they mean exactly and why are they so important? Dr Wilma Waterlander will talk about her research on food policy and how that got her interested in food systems and systems research. Here she will share her experience from the Lancet Commission on Obesity (what is the global syndemic?) and talk about the systems dynamics and participatory action research in the LIKE project / Amsterdam Healthy Weight Program.
