Mental ill health is one of the greatest public health challenges facing the European Region (WHO Regional Office for Europe, 2015). In order to meet the need for measures to strengthen psychosocial health, the Province of Lower Austria, through the initiative "Tut gut!" (Do good!), is expanding the existing range of services to include an intervention to promote psychosocial health in the general population of Lower Austria. In autumn 2019, the stress management training "Show the way to stressful situations" was implemented for the first time. The selection of this intervention has so far been based on evidence-based practice (Satterfield et al., 2009). The Center for Evaluation accompanies the initiative "Tut gut!" in the self-evaluation process by contributing to the assurance of the methodological quality of the (feedback and survey instruments used, evaluation) and brings in a neutral view from outside. It will be implemented from September 2019 to March 2020 with funds from the Lower Austrian Health and Social Fund (NÖGUS).
