No doubt that education occupies a special place in solving especially complex problems of an ever-changing world, with the preservation of mental health of each individual and humanity at the forefront. Education is the driving force, which promotes the development of spiritual forces, abilities and skills that enable a person to cope with the normal stresses of life; forms qualities that help in adapting to the dynamic nature of the ever-changing world; provides opportunities for personal and professional growth. In short, education is the primary means of transmitting both traditional as well as new knowledge, skills and values of mental health, which are the basis for general health and wellbeing. Therefore, the II Congress will focus on the development of an educational environment favorable to maintaining mental health and well-being. To achieve these goals the Congress will provide a unique forum to review the evidence and discuss the contents of education about mental health as well as methods that could be used to make educational effort productive and attractive through interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and inter-sectoral collaboration and cooperation.
