  • Major new Europe-wide report on mental health produced by IMH

  • Learning to take actions for mental fitness and wellbeing in older age (MENTA50+)
    The overall aim of the MENTA50+ project is to respond to the challenges of an ageing society through promoting increased activity of older people, by providing them a supporting framework and developing materials which reflect a holistic approach in giving solutions.

    The project consortium shares the belief that the key to respond to these challenges is to empower both the final end-users and also facilitators and providers who are important mediators to reach the target audience as well as to bridge between them and decision makers.

    The message of the project: “Better (mental) health can lead to living your life more actively” and vice versa “Active lifestyle leads to healthy ageing” reflects the association between active ageing and mental health, which the project undertakes to prove and support. Consequently, this results in communicating the self-responsibility and the capability of the individual to take actions for his healthy and active later life!
  • Closing conference for ENWHP PHWork initiative
    The conference in Brussels will conclude the 9th European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) initiative “Work. Adapted for all. Move Europe”, focussing on promoting healthy work for employees with chronic illness (Public Health and Work, PH Work).

    Chronic conditions and diseases have a substantial impact on the labour market and working life. This urges the need for effective job retention and workplace-based return-to-work (RTW) strategies and interventions, as a means of preventing employees with a chronic illness of moving into disability or early retirement. The PH Work project contributes towards the implementation of effective workplace health practices within corporate policies of enterprises in Europe

  • ‘Santiago Declaration’ on the state of the economy and health announced
    The results of a high level conference which took place in Santiago de Compostela in July 2103 have just been launched.

    The conference reviewed the evidence in relation to the impacts of economic change on health and concluded that current responses to economic pressures ignore these impacts at the costs of storing up short and long term health outcomes.

    The ‘Santiago Declaration’ outlines these impacts and urges political leaders to act to prevent these impacts and to promote a more integrated and humane response to the problems of economic restructuring and unemployment.

  • New study on the Presence, Intensity, and Temporal Changes in Generalized Anxiety Disorder Maintenance Factors in Workers Undergoing Rehabilitation for Persistent Musculoskeletal Pain
    Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are one of the common causes of work absences, but the majority of affected workers return at the end of three to four weeks. However, in approximately 8% of the cases, the absence lasts longer than 12 weeks. Several studies have attempted to identify the factors explaining prolonged disability, and it is now known that the factor that is associated with MSDs must be considered from a biopsychosocial perspective. For the first time, a study will document, in a context of occupational rehabilitation, the presence and variation over time of the uncertainty-related fears and concerns of workers who have been absent from work for more than 12 weeks due to an MSD. The researchers will use an observational protocol with repeated measures to document the levels of intensity of the components of the subjects’ generalized anxiety and to explore the strength of association of these variables and the biopsychosocial factors of MSDs. The results of this activity will help determine which of these factors should be re-examined in future research.
