The PROMISE European Guidelines for training professionals on mental health promotion: Evaluating implementation in the area of depression and suicide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The main aim of the PROMISE project was to develop and disseminate comprehensive training guidelines and model programmes on mental health promotion for professionals working in social and health care, in the areas of 1) healthy living for mental health service users; 2) alcohol and drug use; and 3) suicide and depression. Following an initial analysis of policy, legislation and literature reviews in the area of mental health promotion in different countries, added value was supplied through collaborating with European level health and social service professional bodies, university networks, civil society organizations and non-traditional actors, such as users and their representative organisations to identify the needs of professional bodies that provide training in mental health promotion in the area of suicide and depression. The article addresses the principle topics in the field of suicide and depression which were emphasised as most crucial from users’ and professionals’ points of view.
