In the spotlight

Mental illnesses

More than 40% of Dutch people experience mental health problems at least once in their lives. Mental illnesses affect both young and old and can have an enormous impact on sufferers and also on family members, friends and colleagues. Mental illnesses have a large societal impact.

ZonMw promotes, through several funding programmes, the early detection and identification of problems, their effective treatment, and the individualization of mental health care. We want to reduce the number of people with mental health problems, improve their quality of life and their treatment, prevent problem escalation, and avoid unnecessarily lengthy treatments. 

Illicit drugs

ERANID, the European Research Area Network on Illicit Drugs, aims to improve cooperation in drug research in order to allow well-founded policy decisions, prevention and harm reduction interventions. ERANID is meant as a first step towards a longer term transnational cooperation in the field of drugs research.

In the spotlight: project on suicidal behaviour

Suicidal behaviour is argued to be the end result of the complex interaction between psychological, social and biological factors. Epidemiological studies resulted in a range of risk factors for suicidal behaviour, but we do not yet understand how their interaction increases the risk for suicidal behaviour. A new approach called network analysis can help us better understand this process as it allows us to visualize and quantify the complex association between many different symptoms or risk factors.
