The aim of the conference is to facilitate the presentation of state of the art research and best practice in mental health promotion training for health professionals. The conference will be a platform for the launch of newly developed European guidelines for mental health promotion training, with recommendations for key professional groups (psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and social workers) and themes such as depression and suicidality, alcohol and drugs and, specifically for mental health service users, healthy living. It will also launch guidelines for mental health service user and media involvement in such training packages. These guidelines will be described ‘in action’ by presenting applications of the guidelines to specific professional groups. This conference represents a unique opportunity to present to and network and engage with other professionals with an interest in mental health promotion and illness prevention training. This conference is funded through Directorate General for Health & Consumers - DG SANCO.
