The goal of the YouthMINDS project is to encourage youth workers and young people to talk about mental health, share their experiences, provide the necessary knowledge and skills to take care of their mental well-being, and support it. Helping individuals to better understand themselves, comprehend their emotions, reduce social stigma, and seek help for mental health issues when needed.
Within the framework of the YouthMINDS project, online educational materials have been created. They are presented in various forms, including texts, images, videos and audio recordings, challenges, and applications that help youth workers and other specialists in conducting mental health prevention and enable young people to better cope with any mental health issues, empowering them to seek professional help in times of distress.
On October 26, 2023, Marijampolė gymnasium students had the opportunity to tackle the challenge on the topic of mental health, and they also watched and analyzed educational videos. In the future, they will also have the opportunity to try out the applications and review the learning platform.
