8th Annual Meeting of the European Forum of National Nursing and Midwifery Associations (EFNNMA), Skopje, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, 2004

The 8th Annual Meeting focused on mental health, a key priority area of WHO/Europe.  Three working groups discussed aspects of mental health of importance to nurses and midwives. A statement on mental health, nursing and midwifery was prepared and endorsed by the meeting.

Mental health

Nurses and midwives have great potential to support mental health activities, since they often work in primary health care and in community settings.
To help realize this potential, the European Forum of National Nursing and Midwifery Associations (EFNNMA) developed a statement on mental health at its annual meeting that it presented at the WHO European Ministerial Conference on Mental Health in 2005. WHO/Europe followed up this statement by distributing a questionnaire on implementation in Member States.
