Final Project Summary Report

(by the MILESTONE consortium)

The official final report, covering the entire project period, has just been published!

If you are interested in the study details, key results and overall conclusions of the 5-year-long pan-European research project, click here to read in and find out! The project final report is not only an official requirement by the European Commission, but mainly intended to address and inform the general public about the longitudinal studies performed by the MILESTONE consortium, major outcomes of these studies, and their wider societal implications.

The motivation and goal has always been, and will be in the coming years as well, to improve the care for young people transitioning from child to adult mental healthcare, and to initiate true, effective and Europe-wide change in that regard. We cordially thank all study participants, all professionals, and especially our Young Project Advisors for their efforts and spirit!

Fantastic VIDEO by our Young Project Advisors!

London, UK

YouTube Video

Recently, the MILESTONE project hast come to an end, and our very active Young Project Advisors have produced a fabulous conclusion video about what the key issues in transitioning from youth to adult mental health care are from THEIR perspective, including their experiences of being involved in the MILESTONE research study. Please like, spread the word & share!

"No, I wasn't happy with my transition experience. I had to take control and fight for care. It was lonely, frustrating, and a very long process." one MILESTONE study participant opens up about her own difficult transitioning experience. That needs to change. MILESTONE's findings should assist policy makers in making informed decisions that will improve youth mental health, their quality of life, and increase the overall cost-effectiveness at individual and population levels.

 

Napuštaš li dječju i adolescentsku psihijatrijsku skrb? Što možemo zajedno napraviti da ti olakšamo sljedeće korake?

Mi smo skupina istraživača i stručnjaka iz područja mentalnog zdravlja iz 8 različitih europskih zemalja s posebnim interesom za mentalno zdravlje mladih te za ono što se događa kada mladi ljudi trebaju prijeći iz službe, najčešće one za djecu i adolescente, u službu za odrasle – proces kojeg obično nazivamo “tranzicija”. Loša ili nekoherentna podrška i skrb u tom period zabilježena je u brojnim zemljama te zabrinjava brojne vlade. Kako bismo pronašli najbolji način da pomognemo mladima kroz proces tranzicije, tijekom protekle tri godine surađujemo s mladim ljudima koji se bliže tranzicijskom periodu i to kako bismo ih pozvali da se uključe u MILESTONE istraživanje. Mladi, njihovi roditelji i skrbnici te kliničari koji s njima rade, doprinose svojim znanjem i iskustvima tranzicije, uključujući i iskušavanje novih alata za nadziranje ishoda tranzicije mladih. 

Posljednja godina projekta jest upravo 2018., i do danas smo uspješno u istraživanje uključili preko 1000 mladih i preko 900 roditelja i skrbnika. Priveli smo kraju tri od četiri točke prikupljanja podataka te upravo provodimo posljednje mjerenje ishoda. Ukoliko sve bude u skladu s planiranim, očekujemo da ćemo završiti prikupljanje podataka do 31. prosinca 2018. kada ćemo započeti međunarodni proces dijeljenja naših rezultata i zaključaka istraživanja.

Ukoliko si ti jedan od sudionika u MILESTONE istraživanju, želimo ti zahvaliti za neprekidnu podršku i doprinos. Vrlo smo zahvalni! Ukoliko nisi uključen u istraživanje, nadamo se da ćeš pratiti naše rezultate za koje se nadamo da će uistinu učiniti razliku u poboljšavanju tranzicije za sve mlade ljude koji imaju iskustvo sa službama mentalnog zdravlja, ali i za njihove roditelje i skrbnike.
