Question for written answer E-002466/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Tomáš Zdechovský (PPE), Radka Maxová (Renew), Alex Agius Saliba (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: EU mental health strategy

The Commission report entitled ‘Health at a Glance: Europe 2018’ states that mental health problems affect more than one in six people across the EU in any given year. As mental ill health has a severe impact on the individuals affected, on their families and loved ones, on the economy and on society as a whole, mental ill health needs to be actively addressed. Mental health needs to be promoted.

As co-chairs and supporters of the MEP Alliance for Mental Health, we therefore warmly welcome the conclusions of the Finnish Presidency Council (in October 2019), as well of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs (EPSCO) Council (in December 2019), which invite the Commission to propose a comprehensive EU Mental Health Strategy, taking into account the cross-sectoral impacts of different policies on mental health.

Could the Commission therefore indicate:

1. When it intends to put such a strategy in place?

2. How the views of stakeholders will be taken into account when developing such a strategy?
