EU-MiCare “Training the EU health workforce to improve migrant and refugee mental health care” is a three-year project (October 2022, September 2025) co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, targeting migrants and refugees’ mental health needs.

The EU-MiCare project is targeting migrants and refugees’ mental health needs. It aims to develop a specialized training program for mental health professionals and other health professionals interested in mental health issues who work in culturally diverse environments.

Specific objectives:

  • enhance professional capacity to respond to the mental health needs of vulnerable migrant and refugee populations;
  • raise awareness about the potential of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration;
  • increase awareness of the relevant professional communities and organizations on the developed training;
  • increase possibilities of health professionals who work with migrants and refugees to benefit from the Erasmus+ program;
  • raise awareness on mental health issues among migrants and refugees, so they can easier identify them and be encouraged in asking for help;
  • enhance partner capabilities to develop and deliver appropriate training to health professionals working with migrants and refugees experiencing psychological discomfort.

The EU-MiCare consortium consists of 6 organizations from 5 countries: Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Cyprus.
