This is a first step taken by EASO to learn from EU+ country authorities and civil society orga nisations (CSOs)
some of the challenges and good practices regarding the topic of mental health and applicants for
international protection. The findings compile input received from three of EASOs networks: Reception;
Asylum Processes; and the VEN. These findings will facilitate the planning of the next steps for EASO s upport
in collaboration with the three networks.
This chapter starts out with a general overview about participation in the survey, followed by a review of key
findings. A more in-depth analysis is presented in the following chapters, which looks into reception a nd the
personal interview findings separately. Each section is introduced with a quote shar ed by respondents of this
