EUFAMI part of European Mental Health Sports Network (MENS)
EUFAMI is pleased to announce its involvement in the EU Erasmus+ project MENS (Mental health European Network of Sports). Under the leadership of EUFAMI associate member EDRA, this project brings together 17 partners from 12 countries. interested in promoting mental health through social inclusion in “every day” activities, in this case sports. A number of the same partners previously worked together on arts and mental health in the NEFELE.
EUFAMI’s role is to lead the work stream on networking – we oversee the mapping of key stakeholders at EU and national levels in each of the EU Member States.
Several of EUFAMI’s members regularly run mental health sports events in which people experiencing mental ill health and their family members participate together, to combat stigma.
The project website is still under construction but until it is launched you will keep you updated through our newsletter
