Project Coordinator, Mental Health Europe, MHE

Deadline for application: 05 January 2018

Job summary

Mental Health Europe (MHE) is looking for a full-time Project coordinator for its secretariat in Brussels.

Location: Brussels


Purpose of job: to coordinate and implement the MHE's new project "Shedding Light", which aims at promoting transparency around financial relationships between the pharmaceutical industry and the mental health sector.

About the project: MHE believes that the lack of transparency around financial relationships in the mental health sector has led to lack of informed choice for doctors and patients, over-medicalisation and a worrying reliance on drugs as the main form of treatment for mental ill health. MHE has already addressed the issue through its "Mapping of Transparency and Sunshine Laws" in 2017 and wishes to continue this work through the new project. The core objective of the project is to promote transparency through awareness-raising and by promoting the adoption of sunshine laws across Europe. Another objective will be to inform stakeholders (users of (mental) health services, health professionals, medical and psychiatry students, civil society etc.) about the importance of full transparency in collaborative decision making about treatment, thus empowering people who seek support for their mental ill-health in their contacts with health professionals.

The project is funded by the Open Society Institute Mental Health Initiative.
