Study 2016-04 (HSR) Organisation and optimization of mental health care for elderly in Belgium.

Ongoing study – The WHO report ‘improving health systems and services for mental health’ (2009) advises to consider the need to develop subgroup-specific policies for mental health care (MHC). The Belgian Government has already taken action in 2015 regarding MHC for children and adolescents. With regard to MHC in the elderly population, no in depth analysis is made to date.

The present study aims to develop recommendations to improve MHC in the elderly, by use of a literature study, exploration of foreign models and iterative stakeholder-consultation.
