A poll released to mark World Mental Health Day reveals that during the 12 months preceding the survey, 15% of respondents across EU Member States sought professional help for psychological or emotional problems and 7% took antidepressants, mostly for depression or anxiety. 

This Eurobarometer survey on the self perceived Mental Health of European citizens was conducted during February and March 2010 in the 27 Member States of the European Union.

According to the results, there is still stigma attached to mental disorders, with 22% of those surveyed saying they would find it difficult to speak to a person with a "significant mental disorder". This issue and the other results will be discussed during the next thematic conference under the European Pact for Mental Health and Well-Being  http://ec.europa.eu/health/mental_health/policy/index_en.htm "Promoting Social Inclusion and Combating Stigma for Better Mental Health and Well-Being", taking place in Lisbon on 8-9 November  http://ec.europa.eu/health/mental_health/events/ev_20101108_en.htm
