Register now: MHE Webinar on the European Semester

Initiated in 2010, the European Semester was initially a cycle of economic and fiscal policy coordination within the European Union (EU). Nine years later, the adoption of the European Pillar of Social Rights has put social policies back on the EU agenda and has led the Semester to include national social reforms in its process.


The European Semester is becoming an essential driver for social changes and reforms in Europe.


MHE would like to support its membership as well as partners and stakeholders in getting involved in the European Semester process, which might seem a bit complex to navigate. We want to help you understand how to work with it, and explain to what extent it is relevant to mental health.


Getting involved in the European Semester is easier than you think. Join our live webinar on European Semester to:


  • Learn how it works, its framework and timeline
  • Identify opportunities for your organisation to influence the process
  • Understand how you can get involved
  • Hear more from the experience of other organisations
