Mental health policies in Europe have been driven, in recent years, by two key documents: The Mental Health Declaration (WHO 2005) and the European Commission Green Paper (2005). As such, these important papers have paved the way towards the development of a European Mental Health Pact (European Commission 2008) in which policy-makers and stakeholders are urged to act upon European, national and local policies and implement key measures to enable the prevention of suicide and depression, improvement of mental health in youth, older people and in working places.
