|Project:||Public awareness and education for development in Europe; Increasing Recognition of Mental Heath as an Integral Part of European Development Assistance in Four EU Countries|
|Program Area:||Mental Health and Development Assistance|
|Date:||Jan 2009 - Dec 2010|
The aim of this development project funded by the EU is to raise awareness in four countries of the European Union (as well as at the EU-level and among other development actors) about mental health as a developmental aid issue.
The project will contribute toward increased interest among important stakeholders in older and newer EU member states about mental health issues and needs in developing countries. For the new member states the project will be especially important because it will make the need for Lithuania, Bulgaria, and Romania more tangible to play a bigger role in providing development aid in general, and will encourage them to consider making mental health a central concern of their development assistance work
This project will also help to incorporate mental health into other important current areas to which developmental aid is directed, such as HIV/AIDS, maternal/perinatal health, combating poverty, thereby making assistance provided in these areas more effective in the medium and longer-term. Finally the awareness-raising accomplished by this project will contribute to better coordination and transparency of the support provided to mental health needs in developing countries.
The project has three different levels:
