    Goals / Remit

    Mental Health Europe is a European non-governmental network organisation committed to the promotion of positive mental health, the prevention of mental distress, the improvement of care, advocacy for social inclusion and the protection of the rights of (ex)users of mental health services, persons with psychosocial disabilities, their families and carers.

    MHE works closely with the European Institutions and international bodies to mainstream mental health in all policies and end mental health stigma. Mental Health Europe represents associations and individuals in the field of mental health including users of mental health services, professionals, service providers and volunteers. Together with its members, MHE formulates recommendations for policy makers to develop mental health friendly policies. MHE places users of mental services at the centre of its work to ensure the voice of people who have experienced mental ill health is heard across Europe.

    Other activities

    In its policy work, Mental Health Europe:

    • Provides evidence-based input on the critical mental health implications of social, health and justice policy areas to European institutions and other EU stakeholders
    • Develops recommendations for policies and strategies focused on mental health issues undertaken by the EU or its Member States.
    • Promotes respect of human rights of people with mental health problems to underpin all policy initiatives of relevance to them.
    • Mobilises multi-stakeholder exchange on policy areas of relevance to mental health and well-being.

    In practical terms, MHE monitors and analyses EU policy proposals, decisions, legislation, and processes in the field of EU social and health policy as well as the activities of the European Court of Human Rights. Policy Officers are therefore responsible for the development and targeted dissemination of position papers and engage in dialogue with the European Institutions and other key stakeholders based on communication and consultation with the MHE membership. They also ensure the flow of information and communication between the MHE Secretariat, the European Institutions and the MHE members working at the local, national and regional level, and support and advise MHE members on taking part in key policy processes and exchanging expertise and good practices with each other and external stakeholders.

    MHE Policy Officers also participate in relevant meetings and conferences on behalf of MHE and also help organise meetings, capacity-building seminars and trainings for MHE members.
