The causes of mental health problems are many and complex. This is why PROMENTA carries out research on mental health and well-being in a holistic perspective - from genetics and biology to local communities and policy. We are particularly concerned with understanding the processes that lead to inequality in mental health and well-being, and in contributing to reducing social inequality in health. 

PROMENTA is a multidisciplinary research center focusing on mental health, drug use and well-being in the general population. The Center is based at the University of Oslo and was established in 2019.
