dc.description.abstract Promoting mental health and preventing mental ill health amongst socially marginalized people is a major challenge to European societies. There are various policies and services to achieve this in member states, but information on what constitutes best practice is fragmented and consistent guidelines do not exist. The focus of the PROMO project (Best Practice in Promoting Mental Health in Socially Marginalised People in Europe) is on the delivery of health and social care for people with mental health problems who belong to one of the six following groups: (1) Long-Term Unemployed (LTU); (2) Homeless; (3) Sex Workers (4) Refugees and Asylum Seekers; (5) Illegal Immigrants/Undocumented Migrants; (6) Travellers. The project, which is funded by the European Commission, is coordinated by Professor Stefan Priebe from Queen Mary University of London. The project is being conducted in the capital cities of 14 EU member states, in the period of September 2007 to December 2010. The Health Promotion Research Centre at the National University of Ireland Galway is the participating partner for the Irish section of the study. The aim of the PROMO project is to formulate policy recommendations and identify best practice for the promotion of mental health amongst socially marginalised people in Europe. en_US
