PATHWAYS FOR A HEALTHY STATE OF MIND IN EUROPE

PATHWAYS FOR A HEALTHY STATE OF MIND IN EUROPE

Committee on Disease Prevention and Management presents their policy recommendations:

Promoting Mental Wellbeing and Improving Prevention and Care of Mental Ill Health in the EU

Executive Summary
Mental health is vital for individuals, families and communities. But mental ill health is not an incurable diagnosis: for people who develop mental health problems, recovery is the aim and an achievable outcome for all when given the right support – recovery meaning living with and managing mental health problems, while having control over one’s own life.
The recommendations herewith aim to promote a positive shift in attitudes around mental health problems in order to move towards better societal understanding, promotion of mental wellbeing, prevention of ill health, and increased public investment.

Because most mental health problems are interlinked with the societal and structural environments we live in, and are dictated by psycho-emotional responses to these experiences, various sectors and stakeholders have a role to play in responding to mental health in Europe, beyond the healthcare sector.

Mental ill health and mental health problems pose an undeniable challenge to Europe’s population, societies and economies, which requires political prioritisation and the mobilisation of resources. Human rights should constitute a primary argument for investment and action.
