Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear friends and colleagues,
We would like to invite you to the first webinar at European level: „Supporting the Mental Health & Wellbeing of Young People in Formal Education: Sharing good practices in Europe“
Irrsinnig Menschlich (Germany) in partnership with Mental Health Europe (MHE) is organising this event.
Date: 29 November 13:30–15:30 CET
The goal of this Webinar is to share practices to implement mental health literacy in formal educational settings and discuss solutions for possible challenges. Given the focus on sharing good practices, posters can be submitted.
At this event, we will be hearing about good practices in implementing mental health education activities in different formal education settings: primary and secondary schools, higher education (universities/colleges), and vocational training and education. We will highlight the benefits and discuss solutions for challenges in delivering this kind of programmes. The outcome of the day will inspire participants to learn from the experience of others, lay the basis for potential cooperation and gather recommendations that MHE will feed into the activities of the European Year of Education and Training 2023.
• Practitioners, innovators and policy makers responsible for developing new programmes.
• Professionals who are already active in the field of mental health and education or who want to become active in this field in the near future.
• Potential partners who are interested in setting up new programme locations.
Since 2000, Irrsinnig Menschlich has been supporting young people with their prevention programmes for schools, universities and colleges, vocational schools, as well as companies. With workshops and school project days, Irrsinnig Menschlich seeks to help young people to better understand mental health problems and to reduce the stigma, fears and prejudices whilst working towards boosting confidence, outlining coping strategies and fostering resilience.
We look forward to meeting you and having a successful exchange.
