The third ProMenPol conference took place in Berlin on October 8th and 9th 2009. At this conference the ProMenPol project was very pleased to be cooperating with the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP)  to launch the new ENWHP Campaign with the slogan work. in tune with life. move europe. The main objective of this campaign is to increase awareness among enterprises, stakeholders and the general public of the need for, and the benefits of, mental health promotion at the workplace. Additionally, an essential element will be the identification of useful and practical measures and models on the promotion and preservation of mental health amongst the enterprises participating in the campaign.

At this joint conference, the thematic focus was laid on lessons learned from practice and its perception in the sphere of policy, practice and research. In addition to the launch of the new campaign, ProMenPol presented results from conducting Mental Health Promotion Field Trials and good-practice example for each of the ProMenPol settings (education, workplace and older people’s residences). The presentations formed the basis for discussing advantageous and disadvantageous aspects of evidence-based and good-practice results during the panel discussion as well as during the interactive workshops.

Furthermore, the Project presented latest developments concerning its classification system for mental health promotion tools and the newly launched ProMenPol toolkit. Both enhance the ProMenPol database which compiles hundreds of existing tools, manages information on the implementation process and thereby supports practitioners in addressing mental health promotion in their organisations.
