European Mental HEalth Week
Mental well-being in a changing world
The fourth edition of European Mental Health Week will take place from May 22-26, 2023. This edition focuses on “mental well-being in a changing world.
The current culture of performance creates a high degree of pressure. This affects mental well-being: nearly a million Dutch people experience mental challenges or complaints, 1 in 15 young people struggle with depression. Only 35% can handle change well while maintaining motivation. Social cohesion is declining and labor market pressures are increasing. In 2019, 1.3 million people suffered from burnout symptoms, and the prognosis for the coming years is much higher.
Mental well-being is top priority. When you feel good about yourself, you perform better. This has to do with many aspects of health. Dealing with change and adversity, focus, the right balance between effort and relaxation. But also take moments of rest and keep a close eye on the work-life balance for yourself.
From these six themes, you can choose three to create your own European Mental Health Week. Contact us for a no-obligation demo and to discuss more options.
