EPA Ambassadors Programme

The European Psychiatric Association has put into place the EPA Ambassadors Programme with the goal to establish a database of information on mental health practices and perspectives from around Europe and from within different mental health disciplines.

The programme will operate as a series of surveys intended for all mental health professionals on relevant mental health issues. EPA Ambassadors will be asked to take part in a couple of short surveys per year. The responses collected will help inform and support the EPA’s official position regarding EU policies on mental health research, education, and practices.

2020 Survey: this first survey was focused on the accumulated experiences of treating patients with COVID-19. The results of the 2020 Ambassadors Survey were analysed and presented in an article which was published in the European Psychiatry Journal. Read the article here.

2021 Survey: this second survey was centered around decision-making styles and their predictors.

2022 Survey is coming soon!
