About this trip

Through professional site visits and discussions, learn more about the current state of mental health services and policies in Iceland. Meet with medical and mental health practitioners from a variety of settings including local hospitals, schools and relevant medical societies. Learn about mental health policies, education and training as well as the establishment of ongoing communication and collaboration. Focus on the cultural beliefs and practices that affect the presentation and treatment of mental health problems; how professional and public opinion about mental health disorders have evolved; the role of psychoanalytic theory and tradition; and what local cultural beliefs and practices affect the presentation and treatment of mental health problems in this region. Explore some of the most majestic scenery in the world, including Gulfoss Waterfall, UNESCO World Heritage rated Thingvellir National Park, and a black sand beach with amazing basalt cliff formations. Enjoy a private concert and introduction to Icelandic folk music, storytelling and history from a local musician.


Support local conservation by visiting the Háafell goat farm where Jóhanna Bergmann Þorvaldsdóttir has been instrumental in saving the Icelandic goat from extinction.  Although elusive and unpredictable, the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights may decide to make an appearance since you're visiting Iceland in September. 


7 CE's will be sought for this journey.

Why Nanda Journeys

"This was one of the best group trips that I've ever taken.  Iceland is a not-to-be missed experience.  Nanda Journeys did a top-notch job in selecting comfortable hotels, a terrific itinerary, and wonderful guides.  The professional activities were very informative.  We were able to see quite a lot of the island. Our stops were diverse, and the scenery was spectacular."
