Improving Young People’s Mental Health in Europe:
Transforming Lives, Strengthening Prevention
Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre
Tuesday 23rd June 2015
European Public Health Alliance
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) report on the ‘Health of Young People in Europe’, mental disorders in young people are on the rise with an estimated 10- 20% of young Europeans suffering from mental or behavioural disorders. This timely international symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to assess the current state of mental health policies for young people at the European level and to discover best practices in the field of prevention and early intervention. It will address measures to support young people’s mental health in both school and family settings, while also focusing on the action of health services and community environment in the promotion of mental well-being.
Delegates will also:
- Assess the current state of mental health policies for young people promoted at EU level
- Explore new prevention and early intervention measures and strategies to support young people’s mental health in both school and family settings
- Evaluate the action of health services as well as the impact of the community environment in the promotion and prevention of mental health issues in children and young people
- Discuss the role of technology and social media as a double-edged instrument: risks and solutions
