The PROMENTA Research Center aims to provide answers to three central questions in mental health, well-being, and drug use research.
What processes lead to poor and good mental health, and how?
How do social and geographic inequalities in mental health arise?
How can we develop, tailor, and evaluate effective interventions in communities to promote good mental health?
To address these questions, we examine sources of mental health on a variety of levels, such as genetic risk, neurocognitive development, the psychosocial environment, and the socio-cultural and political context.
The center receives funding from the Research Council of Norway and was officially opened in August 2019.
