EUREGHA – the reference network of European Regional and Local Health Authorities – is pleased to invite you to the meeting organised by the Committee of the Regions’ Interregional Group on Health and Well-being:
Over the past two years, the pandemic has continued to take its toll on people’s mental health, posing severe challenges for our societies both in the short and long run. The risk of a “silent pandemic”, as defined several times by Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, has put a significant spotlight on mental health at the EU’s and Member States’ level, and raised awareness of the importance of promotion and prevention, as well as support for people living with mental health problems. This attention also emerged in Ursula von der Leyen’s SOTEU speech on 14 September 2022, where the Commission President announced a new European strategy on mental health to be presented in 2023.
This meeting will be a unique opportunity to foster a deep policy debate on the mental health policies in the EU and exchange opinions between the European institutions and stakeholders on tracing a path towards a European strategy on mental health. Please, find attached the event’s agenda.
Please, find the event agenda and the registration link below.
Please note: Unlike previous appointments over the last two years, this meeting will be held fully in person, with no web streaming. The room has limited access to 30 people and registrations are open until 22 November. Once registered, the EUREGHA Secretariat will reach out to you to confirm your participation and ask for additional needed information to access the premises.
