Supporting mental health of young people in the era of coronavirus (Me‑Health)
Operational programme ERASMUS+
The objective of the project will be an exchange of experience about new ways to support youth mental health in the context of psychological problems resulting from the new mode of educational system operation during the sanitary crisis: distance learning, isolation.
The exchange of experience between partners from at least 3 EU Member States will help identify challenges faced by teachers and school staff during the coronavirus pandemic, resulting from the increased prevalence of mental health problems among young people. Children and adolescents are more likely to experience negative feelings with which they are unable to cope: fear of the future, fear of the illness, dissatisfaction with being banned from leaving their home and meeting with their peers, frustration with not meeting school expectations, the implementation of distance learning, stress caused by uncertainty about future exams, and the process of enrolling for secondary and higher education.

The project consists of short-term exchanges and international meetings of people (officials and school representatives or other representatives of organisations subsidised by the region working in the relevant areas).
