On behalf of the Wellcome Trust and with the kind support of Sara Cerdas MEP, I am pleased to invite you to take part in a roundtable entitled “An agenda for mental health – 2024 and beyond”, to be held at the European Parliament on 6 March, from 2:30 to 4 pm (Room SPINELLI 5G305).

 With a new approach to mental health in place, the EU has shown commitment to addressing this challenge, affecting European citizens of all ages, genders and across member states. The current legislature has also had an important role in upping the Union’s ambitions overall. With the European elections fast approaching, it is important that this ambition is safeguarded and built on.

 We would be honoured to have you join the roundtable discussion and exchange with us on why EU leadership on mental health is important, what this parliament has achieved in mental health, where the next legislature should focus its efforts, and how actors across the EU institutions and the health community can work together to bring about change.
