EFPA and the WHO Regional Office for Europe are collaborating in a joint project to identify the current state of Clinical Psychology practice in the European Region.

To that end EFPA's 36 member associations have been asked to collaborate by answering a survey, that collects data to map the present situation about the training and practice of clinical psychology in their country.

The data collected will help to establish an overview of the status and role of clinical psychologists in each country in the European Region by presenting their qualifications and responsibilities and some of their functions within the scope of the WHO Mental Health Action Plan for Europe. The data will identify some of the challenges that need to be addressed.

The findings of this survey will enable EFPA and WHO to advocate for actions that would optimize the role of clinical psychology in mental health services.
