About the Mental Health Monitor

The Mental Health Monitor is an initiative of Flemish Education Minister Ben Weyts. The Monitor is developed and implemented by Professor Dr. Ronny Bruffaerts (KU Leuven) and Professor Dr. Maarten Vansteenkiste (UGent), in cooperation with the Support Centre Inclusive Higher Education (SIHO).

The Monitor generates specific action points and recommendations for both policy and practice that translate to the macro, meso and micro levels. Thus, together we develop a caring welfare policy: a 'community of caring'.

The rollout of the Mental Health Monitor is scheduled for October 2022. All universities and universities of applied sciences will distribute the questionnaire to their students.
