The ENMHP are about to offer a new service to members and non-members – Webinars on Mental Health Promotion (MHP) and related topics.

It has become clear that there is a real demand for support in relation to MHP implementation.  Remote training needs to be supplemented by a more personal approach and webinars offer a potential solution in that regard.

The European Network for Mental Health Promotion (ENMHP) would like to assess its audience's level of interest in taking part in webinars.  If you could complete our questionnaire, it will help us to design webinars that will meet your needs to the maximum extent possible.

All responses to the questions will be treated confidentially.  The questionnaire should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Please complete the questionnaire by November the 16th.

If you have any queries about this questionnaire, please contact the ENMHP Secretariat Isabelle Jeffares at i[dot]jeffares[at]wrc-research.ie
