What is the goal of the project?

The demand for mental health care is increasing. As a result costs are rising, but governments have to reduce health care spending. At the same time citizens demand more tools for managing their own (mental) health.
The eGGZ Centre-project contributes in solving these challenges by using an integrated approach; high quality and evidence-based products.
The centre is a knowledge platform for prevention and self-help in mental healthcare. Self-help in mental health care cannot be achieved without proper scientific testing.
Therefore the platform combines efforts of universities, mental health institutions and the end-users.

What is the result of the project?

eMental Health (apps and virtual reality) is an important solution, because it contributes to cost-reduction and at the same time guarantee accessibility to health care for all EU-citizens.
