Maria Walsh, MEP, Co-chair MEP Alliance for Mental Health

"As a Fine Gael member of the European Parliament for Midlands North-West since 2019, Maria sits on the EMPL, CULT and LIBE Committees as a member of the EPP. Maria has been an active advocate and campaigner for diversity and social inclusion for many years. She always takes stances on policy and legislation that align with her values of inclusion, equality, and respect, even if this entails some difficult conversations.

As a Co-Chair on both the Mental Health Alliance and the Coalition of Mental Health and Wellbeing Intergroups in the Parliament, Maria is dedicated to raising the cross-sectional impacts of mental health throughout her policy work. Mental health is at the centre of every conversation with Maria and she consistently engages with EU citizens on the impact of mental health on their everyday lives. With her work on both Intergroups, Maria is leading the call for an EU Year of Good Mental Health to ensure that we are prepared for the oncoming mental health crisis which will follow the pandemic."

Let me know if anything else is needed on this.
