  1. Mental health expectancy : the European perspective : a synopsis of results presented at the Conference of the European Network for the Calculation of Health Expectancies (Euro-REVES).

    Article - En anglais

    The increase in life expectancy observed over the last decade has particular relevance for mental health conditions of old age, such as dementia.

    Although mental disorders have been estimated to be responsible for 60% of all disabilities, until recently population health indicators such as health expectancies have concentrated on calculating disability-free life expectancy based on physical functioning.

    In 1994, a European Network for the Calculation of Health Expectancies (Euro-REVES) was established, one of its aims being the development and promotion of mental health expectancies.

    Such indicators may have an important role in monitoring future changes in the mental health of populations and predicting service needs.

    This article summarizes the proceedings and recommendations of the first European Conference on Mental Health Expectancy.
