Description:Communities, both offline and online, are powerful platforms for nurturing people’s mental health and well-being and reducing stigma and discrimination, enabling many different types and avenues of support, including informal social and emotional support provided by peers and family, counselling by youth workers or school health staff, arts activities provided in schools or community centres, community-wide anti-stigma campaigns, and much more. The way we design and plan the spaces in our communities can also support mental health and well-being, such as for older people, by enabling social interaction and full participation in society. To showcase the many ways that communities can support our mental health and well-being, WHO/Europe, supported by Mental Health Europe and the European Commission, is holding a 1.5-hour kick-off event on 22 May 2023. The event will feature a range of experts from across the WHO European Region who will discuss the many promising ways that communities are supporting people’s mental health and tackling mental-health-related stigma and discrimination.
