Mental Health Education

Project Summary
The general aim of the project Mental Health Education is to promote mental wellbeing among young people, through strategies for the enhancement and promotion of mental health and the dissemination at European level of knowledge and information for the prevention of mental disorders.
Mental health education is an effective strategy for the prevention of mental disorders in young people and should be promoted as early as school age among children and adolescents, providing for effective collaboration between practitioners of formal contexts and those working in non-formal contexts.
Through the actions of Mental Health Education, we want to provide a set of knowledge and skills to young workers enabling them to work in multidisciplinary teams in collaboration with health professionals, bringing tools and practices of non-formal education in institutionalized contexts.
The participants in the project are youth workers who deal with the social inclusion of young people with disabilities, belonging to the network of partner organizations and having an active role within them. Three youth workers will be selected for each partner organization, and their profile can be summarized as follows:
– managers, members, volunteers or collaborators in any way of the sending organization,
– experience in the youth field and in work with young people with disabilities,
– age > 18,
– motivation and interest in the topic of the project,
– be able to share and disseminate what they learned during the course in their organizations and communities.
