In 2016, 3.7 % of all deaths in the European Union resulted from mental and behavioral disorders, and in 2018 approximately 13.5 % of all hospital beds in the EU were psychiatric care beds. Nevertheless, the public stigma that involves both the negative and discriminatory attitudes about mental illness is not only found among the general population and media but even among mental health professionals. It very often leads to social exclusion and reduces the likelihood of becoming employed or accessing health care services. The EU still struggles to find the most appropriate way to fight against the stigma of mental illness and the effectiveness of European strategies and action plans has been difficult to evaluate.
