Everyone has a right to the best

available mental health services within

the health & social welfare systems.

UN Resolution 46/119,1.1,


SMES-EUROPA is an European Network constituted as an International non-profit Association.  (AISBL Belgian law 1919).
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 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.

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 main point of interest uniting the workers of this sector is the interface between the social & health field.



The extent of poverty and

social exclusion in Europe

is unacceptable !

European Council Lisbon 2000


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.

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.
