Over the past decades, confronted with the harsh reality of bullying, the world academic and psychology community have been both investigating the phenomenon from different perspectives and suggesting ways to prevent and create mechanisms to address the problem.
At the same time, it becomes increasingly evident that bullying is not only a school phenomenon, nor does it involve just students. Bullying also takes place beyond school, and involves children, parents, teachers and all competent actors alike, forming a clear social dimension for both the victim and the victimizer. The need for a collective and organized response to bullying on a European level gave birth to the idea of the project “EAN - European Antibullying Network”.
The main objective of EAN is the establishment of a European Anti-bullying Network that will contribute to the coordination of anti-bullying actions and developing a common strategy against the problem at European level.
Τhe partnership is comprised of 17 partners from 12 EU Member States. Once established, all Member States will be represented in the Network with the participation from all major players that form part of the everyday struggle to tackle the phenomenon.
The project has a total duration of 18 months. EAN will be completed in May 2014, when the inaugural conference celebrating the establishment of the European Anti-bullying Network will be held in Greece.
The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

MENS project aims to develop strong institutional procedures for the specific contribution of sports and physical exercise to the prevention, therapy and rehabilitation of the mental illnesses at European level. Due to four key reasons these procedures are currently in nil to low:
1. The stigma is still associated with current therapeutic procedures and intervention;
2. The lack of widespread documentation of the importance and effects of sports in mental illnesses;
3. The lack of health professionals’ expertise in integrating sports activities in the current treatments;
4. The absence of specific cross-sectoral policies to encourage the integration of sports activities in the rehabilitation processes of the mental patients.
