About the MEP Alliance
The MEP Alliance for Mental Health (established in 2009 as the European Parliament Interest Group on Mental Health, Wellbeing and Brain Disorders) aims to bring together MEPs and relevant stakeholders advocate the development of sound EU policies which contribute to the prevention of mental ill health and ensure appropriate and high quality services and person-centred care, empowering those affected. The Group meets 2-3 times a year; these meetings provide an opportunity to underline the need for EU-level activities to take the field of mental health into account in a variety of areas and plan advocacy activities. The secretariat for this Group is being provided by GAMIAN-Europe.
As part of the Peer Support Project, GAMIAN-Europe hosted its second workshop on the 15th of November, 2023, focusing on the essential aspects of peer support, training, and supervision, highlighting their significance in mental health care.
GAMIAN-Europe played a pivotal role in this year’s Brain Innovation Days by contributing to two high-impact sessions on art in mental health and on patient involvement in cross-disciplinary work.
As the challenges in mental support are rising, peer support appears as a useful tool. Join our virtual workshop on the 26th of October and find out how peer support can be integrated in mental health services for optimising patients’ treatment and reintegration to society.
