Promoting Mental Wellbeing in VET

Posted by Valentina Chanina 4 years 3 months ago

,

Today, psychological distress and mental health problems are the leading cause for work absenteeism in the EU, as well as a growing source of productivity loss in many EU countries. Dropping out is one of the major challenges in secondary vocational education and it has a strong association to mental health problems.

The "Promoting Mental Wellbeing in VET" project aims to tackle these themes by developing professional competence of teachers, directors and in-company trainers in promoting mental health in VET, providing concrete tools: material and methods that help students combine mental health skills with vocational skills, and which students, parents and internship companies can find beneficial, and by developing a training program around five themes: mental wellbeing as a resource, self-knowledge, emotions and interaction, coping skills and the learning community.
