Transforming Psychological Science: the 2030 agenda


Seven Pillars of a unified EU mental health strategy

  1. Mental health commitment: Mental health should feature in all EU policies. It should be properly funded, resourced and measured.
  2. Societal crises response: Mental health should be a core part of any policy response to current and future societal crises.
  3. Community-oriented services: WHO’s call for more community-oriented mental health services should be supported.
  4. The workplace: Mental health in the workplace should be a priority, enshrined in health and safety regulations.
  5. Climate change: Support programs—for children and young people especially—should be introduced.
  6. Training standards and regulation: Mental health practitioner training should be based on a recognized standard, properly funded and regulated.
  7. 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
