WHAT IS WHO DOING? The mental health programme at the WHO Regional Office for Europe works bilaterally with more than 20 countries. It assists them in developing and implementing national policies and plans in line with the European Mental Health Action Plan 2013 – 2020. The programme is pursuing a health system strengthening approach to address needs along the full spectrum of mental health services and delivery platforms, to move towards a person-centred, integrated approach for the prevention, management and treatment of mental health conditions. The aims of the European Mental Health Action Plan 2013 – 2020 are: to improve the mental well-being of the population and reduce the burden of mental disorders, with a focus on vulnera - ble groups, exposure determinants and risk behaviour; respect of the rights of people with mental health problems and equal opportunities for attaining the highest quality of life and addressing stigma and discrimination; and establishment of accessible, safe, effective services that meet people’s mental, physical and social needs and the expectations of people with mental health problems and their families.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
