Marketing Text The Dissemination plan for the MindHealth project was produced during year one of the project. The planning part of dissemination was reviewed at the beginning of each year in order to ensure efficiency and confirm that the target groups were being reached. The activities (i.e. papers, publications, conferences, meetings, presentations) have been documented by all partners and evaluated as part of the dissemination strategy. The number of dissemination activities increased following the first year of the project, especially as the project became more widely known during the field trials.
The dissemination approach focused on engaging stakeholders and beneficiaries within the three settings which the project addresses, building stakeholder and network capacity, broadening the span of interest in the project and engaging the interest of practitioners across the EU-27.
In order to disseminate the results of the project to relevant users and stakeholders, the project has been presented at a number of conferences attended by project partners. Articles about the project have also been published in scientific and popular journals. The ProMenPol Newsletter was also used as a vehicle to engage stakeholders who are already recipients. The project also engaged the interest of stakeholders by preparing, printing and disseminating project marketing materials. The project was further promoted through the development of three setting specific e-learning training modules. The development of Face-to-Face Training courses and the engagement of collaborating partners and existing Networks helped support and promote the MindHealth project, enhancing its future sustainability.
Target group The target settings for this project were Schools, workplaces and older people's residential settings. The MindHealth training modules provide the appropriate training to equip teachers, HR professionals and care workers with the knowledge needed to introduce and implement Mental Health Promotion in their respective settings.
