“Transforming Psychological Science: the 2030 agenda”
Seven Pillars of a unified EU mental health strategy
- Mental health commitment: Mental health should feature in all EU policies. It should be properly funded, resourced and measured.
- Societal crises response: Mental health should be a core part of any policy response to current and future societal crises.
- Community-oriented services: WHO’s call for more community-oriented mental health services should be supported.
- The workplace: Mental health in the workplace should be a priority, enshrined in health and safety regulations.
- Climate change: Support programs—for children and young people especially—should be introduced.
- Training standards and regulation: Mental health practitioner training should be based on a recognized standard, properly funded and regulated.
- Equality of access: Citizens should be engaged as partners and have equal access to appropriate mental healthcare. Digital and physical contexts should receive equal consideration
