The EFPC was invited to provide a response via the EU health policy platform for the first version of a draft joint statement for Mental Health prepared by Mental Health Europe. The EFPC Mental Health Working Group developed an additional paragraph on Primary Care to be included in this statement. The paragraph was endorsed by the EFPC membership and has been uploaded at the EU Health Policy Platform website. At the 5 December Platform meeting in Brussels it has been accepted as a crucial part of providing Mental Health care for EU citizens. 

The European Commission has launched a public stakeholder consultation which will feed into the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, which will help improve its functioning, and will also be an important element in preparations of a next EU research and innovation programme. EFPC has been asked to motivate its' members to respond!
