The PROMISE project was a European collaboration between partners in Spain, France, Slovenia, Denmark, Hungary and the UK. The project is funded by the European Commission with commencement in 2009 and completion in 2012. PROMISE was co-ordinated by Professor Peter Ryan at Middlesex University.


The PROMISE project aimed to develop and disseminate multi-disciplinary mental health promotion training guidelines and training programmes for professionals. These will be generic and also specific in relation to suicide, depression, and alcohol & drug abuse. A specific innovation is the involvement of mental health service users in developing the guidelines and programmes with a special emphasis on positive mental health, healthy living, diet and exercise. The European health inequalities agenda is addressed through ensuring a dissemination focus which embraces Southern Eastern and Baltic European areas.
