European Mental Health

Most Europeans experience positive feelings more often than negative says a Eurobarometer report released to mark World Mental Health Day. It reveals that during the 12 months preceding the survey on self perceived Mental Health of European citizens, 15% of respondents across EU Member States sought professional help for psychological or emotional problems and 7% took antidepressants, mostly for depression or anxiety.

Surveyed was beside the consumption of anti-depressants and mental well-being, things like stigma attached to mental disorders, absence from work as well as perception of job security.
