EViPRG would like to congratulate professor Joy Duxbury for being made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). That Joy has been important in research and development of mental health services for many years is well known for us who have worked in these fields, so we are very glad that it is now properly recognized at a national level (even by the British royals). And Joy has since 2004 been a significant contributor to our group in many ways, currently as a member of the board, previously as chair and most of all as a longtime member.

*** THIS IS THE ‘CALL FOR ISSUES’ ***
Two remarks with regard to the Split program:
We changed the ‘Call for abstracts’, from ‘normal’ presentations of ongoing studies into ‘Call for issues’, aiming to have more discussions within the group. An ‘issue’ to be presented to the group could be anything (research, clinical practice, funding, ethical dilemmas’ etc.), however, it has to lead to a question for the group.
There is an increasing interest from PhD candidates and EVIPRG members who supervise students, to allow PhD candidates to present their studies and discuss issues accordingly. Therefore, we decided for the Split meeting to have one full day (2nd day of the meeting) for PhD candidates presenting their papers.
So, anyone who would present at the EVIPRG-Split meeting (and PhD candidates regarding the PhD day May 5th), please send an abstract with a question for the group (max 150 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submissions is April 21th 2017. I will put efforts to set up a program containing interesting issues .
We are looking forward to meet you in Split!
the EVIPRG Board
