The aim of EPREMED is to qualitatively and quantitatively improve mental health policy practices and potential in Europe. This is to be achieved by assuring the maximum impact of the recently completed ESEMeD/MHEDEA and other related European studies through analyses, data synthesis and translation, and effective dissemination to the relevant stakeholders. By formal evaluation of the dissemination and through provision of training and mobility, the project aims to help to consolidate a multidisciplinary community better able to address mental health policy information research in Europe. EPREMED builds on a previous successful research collaboration, focuses on the crucial area of mental health (disorders prevalence and burden; risk factors including poverty, immigration and religion; and services utilisation, with emphasis on unmet need for care). This aims to fill a gap in evidence-based European policy making and to feed another PHP project: Euro Health Expectancy Monitoring Unit -EHEMU. Co-ordination with other relevant activities, in particular those under the Public Health Programme, and with the Working Party on Mental Health to be assured.
