Areas ddressed by the conference will include:

  • Implementation: helping develop dissemination, implementation and management plans;
  • Financing: supporting strategies for financing action and strengthening management systems across Europe;
  • Building capacity and training: strengthening policy and advocacy development, andnetworking.

The conference will be action oriented and highly participatory, being structured around a large number of working sessions and discussion panels. A few plenary sessions will introduce each of the main themes. The conference aims to share examples, barriers and opportunities encountered throughout Europe in implementing prevention and promotion action for mental health. The outcomes of the conference will include a set of recommendations and suggested proposals to support implementation of action for mental health promotion and mental disorder prevention across Europe.

Participants include: policy makers, programme implementers, health promoters, researchers, prevention specialists and planners working at all levels of European society. Given the inter-sectoral nature of mental health, participation of delegates from the education, justice, employment, and other sectors is encouraged.
