|Abstract:||Mental disorders are one of the top public health challenges in the WHO European Region, affecting about 25% of the population every year. In all countries, mental health problems are much more prevalent among those who are most deprived. The WHO European Region therefore faces diverse challenges affecting both the (mental) well-being of the population and the provision and quality of care for people with mental health problems. The European Mental Health Action Plan focuses on seven interlinked objectives and proposes effective actions to strengthen mental health and well-being. Investing in mental health is essential for the sustainability of health and socio-economic policies in the European Region.The European Mental Health Action Plan corresponds to the four priority areas of the European policy framework for health and wellbeing, Health 2020, and will contribute directly to its implementation. The Action Plan has been developed in close consultation with Member States, experts and NGOs, guided by the Standing Committee of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe. The Regional Director for Europe and the Regional Office thanks all who have contributed to this Action Plan. The resolution adopting this Action Plan can be found in annex 4.|
