Parliamentary question - E-004906/2021(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by Ms Kyriakides on behalf of the European Commission

The Commission is dedicated to improving the mental health of the population[1].

The Commission supports Member States in tackling non-communicable diseases, including mental health problems, by focusing on prevention across sectors and policy fields, combined with efforts to strengthen health systems. The Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of non-communicable diseases, which consists of EU Member States’ representatives, is an essential actor in setting priorities and identifying best practices and approaches in accordance with national and EU priorities. It is up to the EU Member States to decide which best practises they want to implement and scale up.

Open calls for best practices are published in the Best Practice Portal[2], which provides an overview of practices submitted and co-funded for implementation under the Health Programmes[3].

At present, under the EU4 Health Programme, there is a call[4] open for action grants to support implementation of best practices on the ground with direct impact on the effort to tackle mental health challenges during COVID-19 until 25 January 2022.
