EUCOMS aims to support the implementation of quality community based mental health care services focused on prevention, treatment and recovery of people experiencing mental ill health.
The EUCOMS network wants to make a difference with and for people who experience severe and enduring mental ill health. The network does this through mutual learning and support between primarily mental health service provider-, but also service user-, carer- and umbrella organisations that strive for the implementation of quality community mental health care in Europe and beyond. EUCOMS also acts as the linking pin between policy and practice and gives service providers a voice in the national and European policy arena. The ultimate goal of the network is that quality community based mental health care services are implemented and accessible for service users in Europe and beyond.
EUCOMS was founded by the Trimbos Institute, EAOF (European outreach foundation), GGZ Nederland and GGZ Noord-Holland-Noord.
