Our Activities

In this specialised field, workers in both established and developing services benefit from shared experience and mutual support. 

ESMHD convenes an International Congress every three years and supports the alternating World Congress. In association with the yearly ESMHD Council meetings, the Special Interest Groups of the Society meet for smaller thematic seminars, workshops and exchanges. 

Special Interest Groups are groups of professionals working in the fields of: 

  • Children and Families 
  • Adults and Families 
  • Elderly Deaf People 
  • Public Health

ESMHD promotes networking, exchanges of expertise and between personnel and countries via the website, and frequent dissemination of news by email.
