Mental health problems are of growing concern in the policy agenda in France. Of particular concern are the topics of suicide, variations in access to and use of mental health care, inequities in psychiatric (and also somatic) care, and the quality of patient care pathways.
The availability of ‘big data’ on the use of care, access to facilities and other factors, provides a great opportunity to produce evidence to help decision-making in the field of mental health policy. Examples from previous and current research, as well as perspectives including international comparisons, will be given.

Karine Chevreul is a medical doctor and Professor in public health, specialising in health policy and health economics. She completed her PhD at the London School of Economics and has been a technical advisor to policy makers and Ministers of health and of social
security, elderly, disabled and family. Her field of research covers health services research, and e-health in the field of mental health.

She is currently the Head of Health Services Research Projects in the Health Economics and Health Services Research Unit of the Paris Hospital Consortium (AP-HP), the Deputy Head of an INSERM (National Institute for Medical Research) and University of Paris 7 team (ECEVE), which is dedicated to providing evidence for decision making for vulnerable groups of people. She is also the head of the ERASM team conducting research in Mental Health Services and Economics.
