A significant and increasing number of young people across Europe are expressing their concern at the prevalence of mental health issues such as high stress, anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses amongst their peers. Young people cite the immense societal pressures they face today, and express a need for better youth mental health provision. This goal inspired Chance International trainers team to develop the “Focus” training course.
By the end of the project we expect participants to:
– have personal understanding of what kind of world they live in, what society expects of them, and how they want to respond to it;
– know techniques and practices to slow down and get closer to themselves know practices and techniques to help formulate goals, objectives, and a strategy to achieve the goal;
– know exercises to get through self-sabotage, techniques to see potential resources in each problem;
– know where the resources that work for them and how to get them;
– using creative techniques build a plan for one year, 3 years and 7 years;
– know and practice techniques for presenting yourself and your achievements.
