MIRA for mental health - National Mental Health Programme

MIRA for mental health

Resolution on the National Mental Health Programme 2018–2028 is the first strategic document to be published in Slovenia that comprehensively addresses the issue of mental health. The National Mental Health Programme Mira brings together existing structures and adds urgently required new ones, thus responding to people’s mental health needs. The main emphasis of the programme is the improvement of mental health along with the prevention and comprehensive treatment of mental disorders. To this end, it brings together the services of all responsible sectors, ie health, social care, education and training. The objective of the programme is to establish a good supportive environment in all areas of mental health care. It seeks to bring services closer to users and encourage them to seek help early, thus reducing institutionalization in the field of mental health.
