The aim of the project is to address the now overwhelming mental health problems in youth.
We would like to expand the knowledge and competencies of youth workers regarding mental health in general, and more specifically the mental health of youth. With our project we wish to empower youth workers in the field of mental health, for them to feel more confident and prepared to deal with mental health issues while working with youth.

The project is composed of two activities (it is expected that the same participants will attend
both trainings). At the first exchange, participants will gain new knowledge on the topic of mental
health etc. which will then be put into practice in the meantime. During the second exchange,
participants will share the experience that they gained, they will deepen the knowledge and
competences. There will be further discussion on practical activities and relevant publications
will be prepared.
