    [Santé mentale - Partie 1: Rapport]
    Today, mental health disorders are experienced by approximately one in ten EU citizens and in many EU states depression is the most common health problem. Suicide represents a significant cause of death, with about 55 000 Europeans
    (Eurostat, 20071) taking their own lives each year, of which three quarters are men2. In recognition of the importance of mental health and well-being in Europe, the European Commission adopted a Green Paper on Mental Health in 2005 to examine how better to tackle mental illness and promote mental well-being. The main aim was to open up a framework for exchange, coordination and cooperation3. Following up on the Green Paper, the European Pact for Mental Health and Well-being4 was launched at in June 2008 at high level conference "Together for mental health and well-being".
    The pact declaration acknowledged the importance and relevance of mental health and well-being for the European Union and symbolises the will of Governments, stakeholders and civil society to exchange and work together on mental health challenges and opportunities.

    [Lignes directrices européennes pour l'assurance de la qualité dans le dépistage du cancer colorectal]

    The guidelines on colorectal cancer screening form the third and final set of three cancer screening guidelines on breast and cervical cancer published by the Commission to assist Member States in their screening and early detection programmes.

    Today’s publication provides the first ever set of uniform guidelines on all the steps necessary for effective population based colorectal cancer screening in the EU. By implementing them, Member States have the potential to organise their health systems more effectively, including the diagnosis and management of cancers detected in screening. There is good evidence that population-based screening using the EU-recommended test reduces mortality from colorectal cancer by around 15% in people of appropriate age (50 to 74 years) invited to attend screening.

    The guidelines, coordinated for the Commission by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), were developed with the input of over 90 experts from 32 countries, and set a benchmark for best practice in colorectal cancer screening. Widespread application of the Guidelines should also make it easier for experts in the field to exchange information and experience across the EU. This is essential for innovation and continuous quality improvement of existing cancer screening programmes.
