At the Health Security in the EU ‘Covid-19 lessons learned to build a stronger EU Health Union’ event on 23rd November in Luxembourg, MHE Director Claudia Marinetti reiterated the importance of focusing on mental health.


Her presentation focused on four areas: improve our understanding of mental health; work on the social determinants; improve mental healthcare systems; co-create policies and practices.
