  EC Green Paper on Mental Health

As a step in the process of developing a comprehensive EU strategy on mental health, the European Commission launched a Green Paper on Mental Health in October 2005 for discussion during a consultation period. The green paper proposes initiatives and priorities for a strategy to improve and ensure mental health in the European Community.

The Imhpa Project is mentioned in the green paper as contributing to an improved knowledge and information base on mental health in the EU (page 8), and providing a potential model for an action plan in the document Plan “Mental Health Promotion and Mental Disorder Prevention: A Policy for Europe” (page 13).
