It is essential that we address the public mental health challenges over the coming weeks and months in Europe and beyond:
By distributing timely, understandable and reliable information from the youngest to the older members of our society;
By providing psychological support to front-line workers and bereaved families;
By continuing care and treatment of people with cognitive, mental and psychosocial disabilities; and
By protecting human rights, especially of those whose rights are often overlooked or violated, including migrants and refugees, prisoners, residents in other closed settings such as mental hospitals or social care institutions, and people with disabilities.
