The European Expert Group on Transition from Institutional to Community-based Care (EEG)

Mental Health Europe contributes actively to the work of the European Expert Group on Transition from Institutional to Community-based Care (EEG) through which we advocate with 12 other organisations for deinstitutionalisation and the transition to Community-based care in Europe. 

The EEG holds seminars and trainings to train and influence the EU to ensure that Structural Funds are only used for the transition and are not used to strengthen institutions.

Alliance against disability cuts

The Alliance against disability cuts explores the negative effect of the crisis and austerity measures on persons with disabilities including people with psychosocial disabilities. Mental Health Europe supports the Alliance work with its expertise on persons with psychosocial disabilities or access to mental health services across Europe. With regular meetings, the Alliance’s members seek to gather data on the impact of austerity.

Alliance for Investing in Children

The Alliance4investinginchildren advocates for the end of child poverty and promotes child well-being across Europe. The Alliance was formed to seek the full implementation of the European Commission recommendation on Investing in Children.

The European Parliament Written Declaration on Investing in Children drafted by the Alliance was successfully adopted with 428 signatures at the end of 2015. The Declaration calls upon the European Commission to introduce specific indicators on children at risk of poverty and urges EU Member States to use EU funding to implement the Commission Recommendation. Mental Health Europe ensures that the mental health of children is not overlooked by contributing to this very active and successful alliance of organisations.

Taskforce on co-production and the support services of tomorrow

MHE co-produced a Declaration on Developing the Support Services of Tomorrow along with several partner organisations and the support of the European Commission.  The aim of the Declaration is to lay out the direction support services should take to enable full inclusion of persons with disabilities, including people with psychosocial disabilities, using the UN CRPD and co-production as the cornerstones for the development of future services. The partners are now working together in a Taskforce to promote our vision of the support services of tomorrow.
