27 April 9h30-11h45, EUREGHA morning seminar “Mental health in the young: good practices and new initiatives”

In light of EUREGHA policy cycle on Mental Health, we are happy to invite you to the EUREGHA morning seminar focusing on Mental health in the young on 27 April, 9h30-11h45, at the Skåne European Office, Rue du Luxembourg 3, 1000 Brussels.

According to WHO, 10-20% of children and young adults experience mental illnesses worldwide. Half of all mental disorders begin before they reach the age of 14 and three-quarters develop by mid-20s. If left untreated, these conditions have a great impact on children’s development, including their educational achievements and a potential to live fulfilling lives. The purpose of this event is to showcase good regional and local practices in the field of mental health in the young and to identify challenges as well as solutions that could lead to knowledge exchange and cooperation at European level.

During the event, we will have the opportunity to hear from and discuss with representatives from the EU-Compass for Action on Mental Health and Well-being (in 2017 they highlight work on mental health at schools as well as prevention of suicides), Mental Health Europe (MHE), as well as to learn about good practices in Region Östergötland (SE), Region Skåne (SE) and Flemish Region (BE).

To register, please send your name to Lina Papartyte at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday 24 April.

EUREGHA, together with the Skåne European Office, look forward to welcoming you on 27 April!
