Toolbox
Toolbox

Meanwhile, we are busy developing the toolbox. We are very happy to show you our first draft of the visual. All together, we decided to divide the toolbox into 4 topics that work in a staircase system. Below we can already give you some teasers, more info will follow soon.

How to flourish; here we focus on awareness of e.g. emotions or lifestyle, we focus on accessible exercises on self-compassion, mindfulness and group dynamics that you can use in the classroom.

How to deal with challenges; here we will focus on e.g. relaxation exercises, emotion regulation, dealing with social media and conflicts.

Learning about mental illness; here we get to know signals about mental health problems, we develop a kind of file that helps you identify signals and give you knowledge.

How to find help/support; here we look for addresses to refer, but we also look at how this can be done communicatively.

National reports
Facts and figures in each country. Discovering good practices.

Each partner developed a national report about mental health in the context of secondary education. The reports focusses on possibilities of teachers to positively impact their student’s mental health. In this stage, we want to find out what exactly are the problems in regard to mental health in the context of secondary education, and what teachers can do to strengthen mental health and well-being of their students.

We did some Interviews and focus groups
The voice of the students and school professionals, we’ve got them all. Students writing letters to their teachers about mental health in the classroom.

It was important to hear everyone's voice. Therefore, we looked for ways to hear the voices of both young people and school professionals. We conducted interviews, but also looked for other ways to identify issues.

We looked for needs, barriers, good practices, …

In Belgium, an interactive focus group was organised during the holidays. However, there were numerous young people present, which once again reflects the need.
