The fourth European Mental Health Week took place this year, in the period from May 22 to 28. The aim of this mental health awareness week, initiated by the organization Mental Health Europe, is to stress the importance of mental health in the everyday life of each individual and the wider community.
This year's theme is "Mentally healthy communities". Mental health is part of our overall health. According to the definition of the World Health Organization, mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her full potential, and can cope with normal stressful life situations, work productively and contribute to his or her community.
Mental health is universal and necessary for the empowerment and progress of any community. The goal of this year's Week is to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in the local community, school, workplace or home. In order to build mentally healthy communities, we need mental health education and promotion. The Center marks the European Mental Health Week with the presentation of appropriate posters in the premises of our Faculty.
