Europa of  Citizens :  on respect of  DIGNITY & RIGHTS  -  SOLIDARITY & EQUALITY

   MENTAL  HEALTH
Dignity  and  Well-being

   SOCIAL  EXCLUSION
Poverty and Home-less

All persons have the RIGHT to the best available mental health care, which shall be part of the health  and social care system. 

NU Resolution 46/119,1.1

  The stigma  and  discrimination, related to the mental disease, are long-lasting.  

Year of Equal  Opportunity  2007

Homelessness is an affront to every value that we assign to the concept of CITIZENSHIP. Homeless, are among the most marginalised in our communities          O’Sullivan IRL Minister  (EU RT Minister 1/3/2013)

When the person has lost everything, and also hope on the future, them does not remain other that to survival on the street where he will be: without rights.. -home,  -dignity,  -job,  -health,  -wellness. 

  These persons remain as a constant challenge and a troubling  sign not only of the economic crisis, but also of values crisis which underpin our democracies - values such as the social cohesion, the solidarity based on respect of individual rights, the equitable access to resources and services.  

2000 : number of people living below the poverty line and in social exclusion in the Union is unacceptable...  Steps must be taken to make a decisive impact on the eradication of poverty by 2010...
                               Eu
Council  Lisbon March 2000

2006 : The TRUE CAUSES of poverty and exclusion are far from being eradicated  in Europe.'         European Council of Lisbon 2006

2010 : Strategy 2020 Inspired by its founding principle of solidarity...,  promoting social inclusion, in particular through the reduction of poverty, by aiming to lift at least 20 million people out of the risk of poverty and exclusion.'  

(EU COUNCIL Brussels, 17 June 2010)

2014 : EU habitants  are 505 millions

    exclusion

    job

-  40 ml suffer from severe material
    deprivation

4  ml   are homeless

what are the true causes?

 What about RESPECT of their RIGHTS ?...
