Current EU projects with EFPA involvement


Period: January 1, 2018 - June 30, 2021

LaRge-scalE implemention of COmmunity-based mental health care for people with seVere and Enduring mental ill health in EuRopE, RECOVER-E

On 1 January 2018 the European Union funded project RECOVER-E started with the official Kick Off event in Luxembourg where both project partners, EU and the project coordinator, the Trimbos Instituut, Netherlands Institute for Mental Health and Addiction, met to discuss the project outline and activities for the forthcoming months;

After the official start in January 2018 in Luxembourg, EFPA is a proud partner in the consortium to support in the dissemination of results and as part of the Advisory Board.

EFPA is involved in WP7 and together with e.g. EPA (European Psychiatric Association) in charge of dissemination of the results.

Short description of the project:

Despite a sizeable evidence base on effective care for people with mental ill health, most Europeans still do not have access to optimal mental health care.

Many effective interventions are not yet implemented at a larger scale, which results in a significant implementation gap. Comprehensive community-based mental health services inclusive of medical, psychological and social support have been shown to lead to better client outcomes (increased quality of life, increased treatment adherence), service outcomes (enhanced access to services) and social outcomes (less social stigma, housing stability, vocational rehabilitation).

To contribute to narrowing the implementation gap in mental healthcare, the RECOVER-E project implements community mental health teams that provide community treatment for people with severe mental ill health (SMI) in 5 implementation sites in 5 European countries:

Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Macedonia, and Montenegro
