SCIE consultation response: Green Paper: Improving the mental health of the EU population
Published: June 2006
The European Commission invited views on proposals for the development of a European mental health strategy. SCIE’s response to the consultation centred on the relevance of mental health to prosperity, quality of life and social solidarity. We also highlighted the importance of a mental health strategy that takes a preventative approach, makes a priority of tackling drug and alcohol misuse, addresses stigma and supports people according to the principles of person centred planning.
