Twitter Spaces | World Mental Health Day | 13 October 2021

To mark World Mental Health Day, Mental Health Europe is hosting a Twitter Spaces conversation “Ensuring Intersectionality at the heart of a future European Strategy on Mental Health” with the Mental Health Advocacy Platform and the European Parliament Coalition for Mental Health and Wellbeing to discuss the need for a European Strategy for Mental Health and Wellbeing that takes an intersectional approach. 

The online event will introduce the Mental Health Advocacy Platform and recognise the overlapping priorities of the European Parliament Coalition for Mental Health and Wellbeing. Speakers will emphasise the need for an integrated approach to address mental health at European level, especially during and post-COVID pandemic. In addition, they will discuss the importance of mainstreaming mental health in all EU policies since mental health is a crosscutting topic. The event will also underline what an integrated approach that promotes mental health and prevents mental health problems should look like e.g. through co-creation and ensure targeted policies to protect the most vulnerable and/or marginalised individuals (such as children).
