This is especially important in context of the pandemic, Health Minister Daniels Pavluts said.
The planned measures are both new services and strengthening the capacity of existing services.
Starting the middle of this year, general practitioners will be able to prescribe up to 10 state-paid up counselling sessions with a psychologist or psychotherapist to their patient.
The capacity of teenage mental health services in Rīga and Liepāja will be improved and newly developed in Ventspils, Daugavpils and Valmiera.
At the same time, funding will provide an opportunity to develop support measures directed at the psycho-emotional state of employees in all Latvian hospitals.
The ministry said that residents, GPs and medical staff will be widely informed about the availability of services.
