Workplaces have experienced rapid changes in recent years, driven by digital and green transitions (‘twin transition’) and the COVID-19 pandemic. New ways of working and managing working environments have arisen, and these can affect the physical and mental health of workers in new ways, both positive and negative. Workplaces can be health-promoting environments, but how this can be achieved in practice needs exploration.
The “Mental Health Promotion and Intervention in Occupational Settings” (MENTUPP) project is a 4-year Horizon 2020 EU-funded project that started in January 1st, 2020, with the aim of improving mental health in the workplace by developing, implementing and evaluating a multilevel intervention targeting mental health difficulties in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the construction, health and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sectors.
The consortium is funded by European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) within the #EU4Health program for two-year project MESUR – Mental Health Support for Ukrainian Refugees. Partners from six countries aim at improving mental health and psychological wellbeing of Ukraine’s displaced people.
The main goal of EAAD-Best is to reduce the burden associated with depression and suicidal behaviour at the individual and societal level in Europe. This goal will be achieved by supporting the implementation of the EAAD 4-level intervention concept in target regions and countries, plus the national promotion of the iFightDepression® tool.
