The overall aim is to facilitate and improve the access to the correct mental health care. The researchers will gather evidence related to the perspectives of the professionals, patients and the public mental health debate. They want to develop a multi-applicable framework across European countries and stakeholders in order to achieve the adequate access to mental health care in terms of diagnose and treatment in women and men.
The project has three objectives. The first focuses on collecting data related to a health perspective, patients' perspectives and the general debate on mental health. The second aim is to develop a framework that is applicable to achieve adequate access to proper care in terms of diagnosis and treatment and the third purpose is to provide tools and methods that can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of mental health care treatments.
The Mentally project targets professionals working within primary and specialized mental health care, ex-patients and possible patients of mental health care and their social network, the general public, academics, policy makers and journalists.
