OECD- Well-being and Mental Health – Towards an integrated policy approach 6-9 December 2021

We are pleased to inform you that the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will be hosting a series of online events on Well-being and Mental Health – Towards an integrated policy approach.

This four-day virtual conference will take place from 6-9 December 2021 and follow the recent OECD publication of A New Benchmark for Mental Health Systems: Tackling the Social and Economic Costs of Mental Ill-Health. The events will explore the interrelationships between mental health and people’s economic, social, environmental and relational well-being. Experts and key stakeholders will take stock of existing work on the social determinants of population mental health, consider measurement challenges and examine lessons learned from integrated policy approaches so far.

These events mark the start of a new OECD project applying a well-being lens to population mental health, drawing on the different economic, social, environmental and relational dimensions of people’s lives highlighted by the OECD’s Well-being Framework, and building on synergies with the whole-of-government approaches to well-being now under development in a number of countries. The events will take stock of existing work that considers the multidimensional drivers and social determinants of mental health; further develop measures of population mental health status; and examine what lessons can be learned from the integrated policy approaches to mental health promotion that have been put into practice so far. It is organised by the OECD Centre for Well-Being, Inclusion, Sustainability and Equal Opportunity (WISE) together with the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs (ELS).

The agenda of the online events can be found here and you are invited to register and attend, if you are interested, by clicking here.
