Statement by Commissioner Stella Kyriakides on World Mental Health Day: Mental health is a health emergency

Ahead of Mental Health Day that took place on 9 October, Commissioner Kyriakides declared: "We need a turning point for mental health. This means bringing effective mental health support closer to those who need support the most. This must be our priority. And mental health needs to be part of all policies to build societal resilience. This is particularly important for vulnerable groups such as children, young people, the elderly, migrants, and refugees, who have all been affected by the challenges we are facing. This is the approach the EU is taking."
