Workshop on mental health in times of economic crisis
Client: European Parliament
Milieu Ltd has supported the Directorate General for Internal Policies of the European Parliament in the organisation of the workshop on 'Mental Health in times of economic crisis'.
The aim of the workshop was to exchange views on the detrimental effects of the economic crisis on the mental health of European citizens. The workshop reviewed evidence on the link between mental health and the global financial crisis and included a panel discussion on possible solutions to tackle the issue.
The workshop was hosted by by Glenis WILLMOTT, MEP, Co-chair of the Health Working Group of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety of the European Parliament.
Milieu Ltd provided logistical support to the European Parliament for the organisation of the workshop. Milieu staff has identified and contacted experts with extensive experience in the area of mental health as well as arranged their participation.
Milieu staff drafted the press releases for the workshop (both before and after the workshop) and the final workshop report.
