Mental Health Europe hosted the second edition of the European Mental Health Week on 10-16 May most years in the past. On May 10-16 May, 2021, the theme ‘Mental Health Matters’ put a spotlight on mental health as a high-profile societal issue as well as a deeply personal experience for everyone during the pandemic.
My mental health matters. Your mental health matters. Our mental health matters. More than ever.
Everyone is involved. Every day is impacted. Every society is stronger. When mental health matters.
We are all experiencing a different pandemic. Suffering the loss of a loved one, missing family or friends, losing workplace security, makes us feel lonely, stressed or uncertain.
The good news is that our mental health can always improve.
We are all on a different path, at different stages on our mental health journey. Let’s now answer the questions that really matter.
Move your mind. Move your body. Move forward.
Mental health matters. More than ever.
European Mental Health Week is a pan-European initiative that aims to raise awareness about the importance of mental health in our everyday lives. Set up and run by Europe’s largest independent mental health NGO Mental Health Europe (MHE), the second edition of the European Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10 May until 16 May 2021.
This year’s theme ‘Mental Health Matters’ will shed a spotlight on mental health as a high-profile societal issue as well as a deeply personal experience for everyone during the pandemic and beyond. Over a year of pandemic, lockdowns and coronavirus restrictions have put a strain on many people’s mental health. We are all experiencing a different pandemic. Some experience the loss of a loved one, miss friends or family; others lost their workplace security and feel lonely, stressed and uncertain about the future. Now, more than ever, our mental health matters.
This week-long online action is a chance for people to talk about all aspects of mental health, share personal stories of how people cope with difficulties during the coronavirus crisis and highlight the need for action focusing on advice and support.
Watch an opening message from Liuska Sanna, Acting Director of Mental Health Europe to mark the start of 2021 European Mental Health Week.
The European Mental Health Awareness Week builds on the long-standing global tradition of celebrating Mental Health Awareness month in May.
Their ambition is to promote this positive practice throughout Europe and establish the European Mental Health Week as an annual pan-European mental health campaign celebrating the path to awareness and action.
