Invitation for World Mental Health Day 2022

10 October 2022 | #WorldMentalHealthDay #WMHD2022

World Mental Health Day is observed annually around the globe on 10 October. Since 1992, the global community unites on this day to raise awareness and reduce the stigma that surrounds people with mental health problems. This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is ‘Make mental health & wellbeing a global priority for all’.

WMHD 2022 - v2

Mark your calendars for World Mental Health Day, observed annually around the globe on 10 October.  To mark the day, Mental Health Europe is delighted to invite you to an event at the European Parliament ‘World Mental Health Day: Migrants, Refugees and Mental Health’.

 

In line with this year’s World Mental Health Day theme, Mental Health Europe will host a hybrid event at the European Parliament on the 10th of October (14:00 – 16:00) focusing on refugees, migration and mental health.

 

This event will be co-hosted by MEP Tilly Metz (Greens/EFA) and MEP Estrella Durá Ferrandis (S&D).

 

Migration is an integral part of inclusive societies. Migrants and refugees can be exposed to various stress factors, which affect their mental health and well-being before and during their migration journey as well as during their settlement and integration. People on the move can face mental health difficulties multiple times, be it disturbing experiences in their country of origin such as war and forced displacement, along migratory routes such as the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea, and during challenging reception conditions with long periods of legal limbo. Most recently, the war in Ukraine has put the spotlight on the short, medium, and long-term mental health consequences of conflict, displacement, and exile.

 

This year’s event will bring together various stakeholders (policymakers, service providers, and non-governmental organisations) active in the field of migration and mental health. Various key actors will discuss good practices, challenges and how to ensure adequate mental health support in the context of increased migration across Europe.

 

Now more than ever, we need to ensure mental health for all.
