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.
