The European Commission supports efforts to improve the mental health of the Union. Among the EU’s ambitious response to COVID-19, the EU4Health programme tackles mental health as part of its actions to improve and foster health in the Union.
Under the Horizon Europe programme (and its predecessor Horizon 2020), the Commission also invests in projects promoting mental health as well as those aiming to prevent, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, such as EMPOWER.
In 2022, the European Mental Health Week is organised on 9-13 May.
In celebration of European Mental Health month, the European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) compiled a selection of such actions and projects, including the Empower Platform.
