The enormous burden and amount of suffering associated with mental disorders represent one of the biggest challenges for health care systems in Europe today. This challenge is marked by the immense scope and costs of mental disorders. Important factors are their persistent increase due to an aging population, the rapid socioeconomic changes currently taking place, and, finally, the large unmet treatment needs, combined with insufficient awareness of their existence and significance. There is a compelling need to improve the life of people suffering from mental disorders and to assert the importance of a scientific approach to the disease manifestations, causes and treatments.

The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) is a unique and remarkably broad interdisciplinary platform which strongly emphasises translational research with the aim to apply new knowledge on fundamental disease mechanisms to clinical applications and vice versa.

ECNP bridges the gap between basic research, clinical science and medical practice, paving the way for improved pharmacological treatments, which will improve the quality of life of millions of people suffering from mental disorders.
