"Why haven't victims of the incident been offered help so that they could resume their work in their previous units or positions?

EU is still missing comprehensive EU strategy on Mental Health

"While there are many current initiatives addressing mental health, we are still missing comprehensive EU strategy on Mental Health.

The approach of the Commission has been very hesitant but we clearly see the support of the member states and pressure from the Parliament so believe that soon we will also see development on the side of the Commission," says Tomas Zdechovský, co-chair of MEP Alliance for mental health.
