For the past few years, as EMSA Europe, we try to raise awareness regarding mental health by social media campaigns or sessions during our general assemblies. Besides, during the terms 2016/17 and 2017/18, Public Health Pillar worked in particular on Mental Health and well-being of Medical Students and prepared a report concerning psychological support provided by European Medical Universities, which indicates that 37.3% of 67 FMOs that were members of EMSA in 2016 didn’t have psychological support instruments. We believe that acknowledging the importance of mental health among medical students and practitioners is crucial as well, since the numbers of people dealing with mental illnesses has gradually increased, both in society and among medical staff.
