Mental health III: Funding mental health in Europe




This policy brief provides an overview of the level of funding for mental health in Europe. It looks at the way in which mental health care is financed, and how available funds are distributed within countries in order to facilitate access to a range of services, often provided across a number of sectors such as social care, housing, criminal justice and education. Barriers to increased funding for mental health and to the improved allocation of existing resources are discussed and solutions provided.
