European Public Health WEEK

22-26 May 2023


Public health: Global issues, local actions


Monday 22 May - Mental health for all

The principle of equality is a central topic on the agenda in public health. The very word equality implies that differences exist, and that our populations are diverse. How do we embrace this diversity amongst patients and provide appropriate care for everyone? Special attention should be given to vulnerable groups and representation should always be kept in mind, for example in decision-making bodies. What action can be taken in health leadership to accommodate diversity in health?


Daily partner









Our daily partner for the topic of "Mental health for all" is the WHO Regional Office for Europe, supported by Mental Health Europe and European Commission's DG SANTE. The daily partner, and the supporting organisations, develop and organise the kick-off event of each specific day.
