On the 10th of October 2022, to mark World Mental Health Day, a hybrid event titled ‘World Mental Health Day: Migrants, Refugees and Mental Health’ was held in the European Parliament. Organised by Mental Health Europe (MHE) and co-hosted by MEP Estrella Durá Ferrandis (S&D) and MEP Tilly Metz (Greens/EFA), the event brought together over 100 participants, both online and offline, spanning across EU institutions, European Networks, national experts and persons with lived experience and more.


This year’s World Mental Health Day event brought together key actors to discuss the importance of good mental health and how best to provide adequate mental health support in the context of increased migration across Europe. The discussions particularly focused on the need for stronger, more inclusive, accessible mental health promotion, prevention, and services for refugees and migrants in Europe and beyond.
