Mental Health Care (MHC) in the contemporary world has become a global problem with a number of negative consequences. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental and behavioural disorders are extremely common and affect up to 25% of all people in different periods of their lives. The WHO notes that in the future, given the ageing population and worsening social problems, the number of MHC cases will increase considerably.

Simultaneously, each country in the world faces significant hindrances in both socio-psychological and economic aspects of the MHC system. No country has yet been able to completely solve this problem. This creates an urgent need in joint efforts towards searching for solutions of common problems.

  • to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and development of (non)-academic MHC researchers, practitioners and policy-makers networks

  • to investigate transdisciplinary and multicultural solutions of MHC specific issues


  • MHC systems in the context of global social challenges
  • Management, organisation and treatment of Mental Health Issues support
