The EU Health Policy Platform invites you to join this webinar.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shed light on mental health. The first signs of the mental health impact of the pandemic became apparent already after a few months. In trying to address the impact of COVID-19 on mental health, over a period of more than two years, we have learned important lessons. It is crucial now to investigate whether and how the different lessons have been taken forward (i.e., the issues have successfully been tackled) and – if not- what the hurdles have been and what is needed to make progress. This will enable us to build a Europe which is more resilient and better prepared to face future
The webinar is open to all stakeholders.
The objective of this webinar is to share knowledge and experiences related to concrete actions carried out to address the lessons we have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic,
in relation to mental health. The Webinar will also provide an opportunity to reflect on whether the actions taken to address the lessons learned are being sustained, embedded in changes in practices or in policies and supported through adequate funding.
The webinar will focus on three main lessons:
– The importance to live and work in an environment that is positive for mental health
– The importance to put in place tailored actions to address mental health needs of potentially vulnerable groups
– The importance of ensuring sufficient capacity and quality within mental health services to meet diverse and increased needs.
