Mental Health Inclusion

Mental health affects all of us

Let’s open up!

Why this campaign?

We see that there is currently a lack of an EU-wide action plan on mental health. The effects of pandemic restrictions, the war in Ukraine and the rising cost of living have contributed to a greater risk of depression and anxiety among EU citizens. Mental health needs to be integrated into existing EU structures and funds but it remains often taboo. We want to open up this space by sharing our member’s work as well as best practices.
