Migration and Mental Health

 

MHE together with the European Public Health Alliance is currently working on a project on migrant’s mental health ‘Mapping, Tracking and Advocating for Funds to Address Migrants’ Mental Health’. The project is funded by the Open Society Foundations and involves two local partners: MHE’s Italian member L’Associazione Italiana per la Salute Mentale (AISMe) and the Greek civil society organization HumanRights360. The project seeks to provide a clear picture of the size and uses of EU funds designated for migrants’ health, with a focus on mental health. It consists in three objectives:

health, with a focus on mental health. It consists in three objectives:

  • Determining whether adequate EU funds are available for and spent by national organisations on appropriate activities and initiatives that will ensure better mental health of migrants in Europe.
  • Exploring the impact of such funding at national level, more specifically in Italy and Greece, which serve as entry points for many migrants coming to Europe.
  • Advocating for enough and appropriate funding to foster better mental health of migrants in the short and long term, and as a key element of enabling successful integration into their host countries.
