The European Journal of Mental Health is an international, interdisciplinary, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes research in social and behavioral sciences focusing on mental health, personal and relational well-being, and quality of life. Our journal promotes a broader understanding of mental health and well-being through developmental and life-course perspectives, relational and systemic approaches, social-ecological views, and transdisciplinary thinking. It provides a platform for novel and unique theoretical and empirical findings and welcomes manuscripts from all fields of psychology, psychiatry, other health sciences, sociology, social work, social policy, education, special education, human ecology, and media sciences. The European Journal of Mental Health particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research in applied fields and also focuses on contemporary social and ecological risks and problems affecting well-being and mental health in general, as well as specific populations in Europe and across other cultures. The Journal encourages the conduct and publication of solution-focused and resilience-oriented research.

The  Journal was established in 2006 by the Semmelweis University Institute of Mental Health. Since 2017, the European Journal of Mental Health publishes articles only in English. The journal uses the DOI system. In 2021, 9 research articles, 7 short communications, and 1 review article were published. As of 2023, the journal publishes 1–3 articles on a monthly basis. Advertising spaces are not sold nor are sponsorship accepted by the journal.
