Personal stories

Users of mental health services in Europe sharing their personal experiences

Some users and ex-users of mental health services in the WHO European Region agreed to share their personal experiences. Their accounts question the appropriateness of the treatment some of them received and open a debate that should involve all stakeholders. These stories were collected through a questionnaire, sent to users and ex-users of services in 18 countries. This work was made possible through a donation from the Margrét Björgólfsdóttir Memorial Fund in Iceland.
