    [La santé mentale et le bien-être sur le lieu de travail – protection et intégration en période difficile]
    Mental health problems have become one of the leading causes of work absenteeism and early retirement all over the European Region. The current economic recession and its effects on the job market are likely to add to the problems in employment and quality of life experienced by people with mental health problems and their families.
    This publication reflects the presentations given at a WHO meeting on mental health and well-being at the workplace in 2009. It suggests ways to respond to the challenges that modern working life presents to mental health and well-being and to overcome barriers to employment for people with mental health problems. It also discusses opportunities for integration and empowerment given the global economic downturn from the viewpoint of service-user and family-caregiver associations, enterprises, trade unions, politicians and researchers. It is essential reading for employers and policy-makers in the European Region and beyond.

    [La santé mentale et le développement: le ciblage des personnes souffrant de troubles mentaux en tant que groupe vulnérable]
    The new WHO report on mental health and development is a call to action to all development stakeholders - governments, civil society, multilateral agencies, bilateral agencies, global partnerships, private foundations, academic and research institutions - to focus their attention on mental health.
    The report presents compelling evidence that persons with mental and psychosocial disabilities are a vulnerable group but continue to be marginalized in terms of development aid and government attention. It makes the case for reaching out to this group through the design and implementation of appropriate policies and programmes and through the inclusion of mental health interventions into broader poverty reduction and development strategies. The report also describes a number of key interventions which can provide a starting point for these efforts. By investing in persons with mental and psychosocial disabilities, development outcomes can be improved.

    [Déclaration de la FEAM sur les questions politiques en santé mentale]

    The high burden of mental illness has been relatively neglected in EU policy. The current practice of psychiatry is undermined by insufficient biological understanding of mental health disorders, under-recognition, stigmatisation, a lack of effective therapeutic interventions and of access to care delivery.

    The present report draws on discussion from a Prague meeting organised in 2009 by FEAM (Federation of European Academies of Medicine) to review some of the critical issues in contemporary psychiatry and is intended to provide advice to decision-makers at the EU and national levels in developing a more coherent policy for mental health. It covers policy priorities relating to research and public health for major contributors to the disease burden, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and their co-morbidities. it also addresses cross-cutting issues for mental health policy, including stigma, suicide, addiction, workplace stress and the challenges of adolescence and ageing.

    The recommendations focus on the needs to achieve better understanding of the psychosocial and biological factors in mental disorders, together with their interactions; to capitalise on scientific advances so as to develop more effective recognition, classification, diagnosis and therapy; and to share best practice to optimise the delivery of health services. Achieving a more productive linkage of research with clinical care requires improved epidemiology, increased investment in basic, clinical, translational and multidisciplinary research and its supporting infrastructure, and new approaches to networking of centres of excellence and public-private partnership to translate scientific advances into innovation.

    Developing this coherent strategy for mental health requires increased commitment from the European Commission and Parliament. The biomedical community also has a major responsibility to engage with policymakers and the general public to communicate about mental health disorders, their determinants, triggers, risk factors and management.
