We're part of SCALA's global, four-year project.

SCALA is a four-year project funded through the European Horizon 2020 programme.


The programme is testing the scale of two key factors. The first is primary healthcare-based prevention. The second is the management of heavy drinking and co-morbid depression.

We achieve this by embedding training and ongoing support into community-based municipal action.



The project involves partners across the globe, from Europe to South America. Newcastle University works with organisations in:

  • Germany
  • France
  • Netherlands
  • France
  • Spain
  • Columbia
  • Mexico
  • Peru
