About the Project


Time left to apply








The wellbeing and mental health of young people is quite delicate, due to peer-pressure, self and social acceptance, emotional and identity exploration, skills development, as well as physical changes. Suffering and oppression can significantly undermine youth’s development and self-esteem to the extent that leads to depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.

These alarming facts constitute the impulse behind the project “Safe Spaces where Youth can find Balance”, whereby participating organizations come together in the attempt to help young people address and take care of their mental and emotional health, in direction of the European Framework for Action on Mental Health and Wellbeing.

The methodology used in this training course in Spain will be a combination of non-formal education tools, group-centered learning and exchange of best practices, being both the program and the methodology flexible, inclusive and adapted to participants’ needs.

Sessions will be dedicated to develop, with project partners, ideas for future collaboration (KA1, KA2, KA3) about youth’s mental health and inclusion, to further explore these topics, and ultimately obtain a greater and long-lasting impact on society, with our actions.
