Working Group Chair Dr. Janet Metcalfe
The objectives of WG1 are to:
- Address researcher mental health at a system level bringing together researchers, funders and policymakers
- Build an evidence base on the prevalence of poor mental health and characteristics of the working environment across Europe; and how these differ by role and context
- Identify actions that can be done at a system level to improve mental health; with examples of good practice
WG1 intends to focus on systemic issues beyond any particular organisation or discipline and start to bring together cross-institutional evidence on prevalence, characteristics of the working environment (and how these differ by role and context), and what can be done at a system level. The aim for this group would be to encourage system level actors (e.g. national and European funding agencies) to explore what can be done at a system level to improve mental health.
