Mental well-being is one of the building blocks of the Nordic welfare state. The COVID-19 pandemic, the ecologic crisis and other major social challenges show the need for mental health promotion and psychological crisis resilience in society at large. Psychological crisis resilience is a crucial element of the welfare state and reflects how individuals and communities handle crises and recover from them.
The summit will focus on social actions for post-covid mental health promotion, building psychological crisis resilience and strengthening the Nordic welfare state. Reconstruction of mental well-being in the Nordic countries after the COVID-19 pandemic and suicide prevention during crisis will be discussed. The summit welcomes experts, policy makers, researchers and practitioners to join and discuss mental health issues together. The summit is organised by MIELI Mental Health Finland as a hybrid meeting with the possibility to attend on site in Helsinki or online via webcast.
