Head of focal point: Mr Franz TrautmannThe national focal point in the Netherlands is integrated within the National Drug Monitor, established in 1999 by the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport in order to evaluate and review registration and survey research data at national level, and to report these data to the Lower Chamber of Parliament, concerned ministries and other stakeholders inside and outside the country. The NFP is part of the Drug Monitoring Department of the Trimbos Institute, the national research institute for mental health care, addiction care and social work in the Netherlands, which is tasked with informing policymakers and politicians about the mental health issues that concern the Dutch population.
