Event Mental Health Europe during World Mental Health Day on 10 October

World Mental Health Day is observed annually on 10 October. Since 1992, the global community unites on this day to raise awareness and reduce the stigma that surrounds people with mental health problems. This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is ‘Make mental health & wellbeing a global priority for all’.  

In line with this year’s theme, Mental Health Europe (MHE) will host a hybrid event at the European Parliament ‘World Mental Health Day: Migrants, Refugees and Mental Health’ on the 10th of October (14:00 – 15:30) focusing on refugees, migration and mental health. This event will be co-hosted by MEP Tilly Metz (Greens/EFA) and MEP Estrella Durá Ferrandis (S&D). The event will bring together key actors to discuss the importance of good mental health and how best to provide adequate mental health support in the context of increased migration across Europe.

You have the option of joining the event in person or tuning in online.
