Everyone has a right to the best available mental health services within the health & social welfare systems.   UN Resolution 46/119,1.1,

ballblue.gif (326 octets) SMES-EUROPA is an European Network constituted as an International non-profit Association, (aisbl Belgian law 1919), operates at the interface, intersection of mental health & social exclusion,  especially for homeless and mentally ill people, suffering of both exclusion conditions: mental illness and extremely poverty .
The  European SMES project began in 1992 in Rome as a result of the first European seminar on the appalling neglect and abandonment homeless people living in extremely poor health & social conditions

The AISBL was founded in 2001 in Belgium and its special area concerning health / mental health, with a specific attention to homeless and mentally ill people, abandoned in the streets or in the shelters.

ballblue.gif (326 octets) The exclusion  is a structural phenomenon of society and constitutes a political challenge for all the Europe. Loneliness, sickness, mental illness, drug abuse and/or alcoholism, may be the cause or the results of this state of alienation and exclusion from society, which in some cases may be irreversible and which could eventually lead to a complete break with society.

ballblue.gif (326 octets) The AIM specific and distinguishing SMES-EUROPA objet is the reflection and action at the intersection of social exclusion (inclusion) within mental health (illness), the interaction between exclusion & mental health.

 

 The extent of poverty and  social exclusion in Europe
 is unacceptable ! ! !

European Council Lisbon 2000
 

ballblue.gif (326 octets) The problem of the "excluded & mentally
suffering people"
, abandoned on the streets, living
in reception centres and in precarious housing
conditions, is only the visible tip of a societal
phenomenon which is more serious and widespread
than it appeared to be at first.

 

TARGET  :   Women - Men  'home'-less

  • mentally ill without assistance

  • young people at risk of losing viable society's
    contact

  • children exploited and abused

  • addicted people to substances

  • (ex) prisoners

  • elderly people abandoned

  • immigrants in illegal situation.

ballblue.gif (326 octets) The problem, despite national differences,
is European and, for this reason must be placed at
the centre of an urgent call for awareness and
deeper consideration particularly with respect to
the development of a new political European program..

The building of Europe must take place within
a framework of an Europe of Citizenship & Solidarity.
