Mindful was a two year project developed in Finland by the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL for "Terveyden ja Hyvinvoinnin Laitoksen") from 2004 with the objective of improving the existing information on mental illness in Europe. The project finished in 2006 but grouped information for a larger period of time. The database contains information only on mental health and has been praised as exemplary at the WHO Helsinki conference on mental health.
