Ambitions of the R2D2-MH project

R2D2-MH will go beyond the state of the art by applying a highly interdisciplinary approach integrating diverse expertise: ethics, epidemiology, sociology, genetics, cell biology, neuroscience, computational modelling, IT development, psychology, and psychiatry. Our research is highly engaged: individuals with NDDs and their families are involved in research to ensure that our expected outcomes are truly translational. R2D2-MH will communicate through a strong dissemination strategy that includes a platform to discuss all R2D2-MH results with the stakeholder community and contribute to new policies via white papers pointing out gaps, needs and actions necessary to improve MH strategy and policy. R2D2-MH has four main ambitions to progress beyond the state of the art:

Triangle Square

Ambition 1

Increase participatory research/medicine and reduce stigma surrounding mental health

Ambition 3

Provide the largest European multi-scale dataset on early brain and mental health diversity in humans

Ambition 2

Co-develop a first generation of predictive models for developmental diversities (co-creation)

Ambition 4

Identify biological mechanisms of resilience associated with diverse outcomes in developmental diversities
