About the project

YOU HEAL represents a key long-term investment in human capital and capacities in many coming years and answers current societal needs by supporting the psychological resilience of young people, even in uncertain times. We provide easy access and open source learning content for self-care, based on flexible learning approaches as well as developing a local learning environment and empowering young individuals and society for positive changes.

Protective factors of mental well-being

Optimistic thinking, the ability to trust family and friends, and daily physical activity are all protective factors of mental well-being. We can do a lot for our mental health ourselves by using simple strategies to manage our stress levels daily. In stressful situations, it is good to pay attention to and express them without hesitation since the suppression of emotions only deepens mental distress.

Project objectives

YOUHEAL aim is to empower youth with new competencies and capacities. Young people need to recognise their values and talents, increase the clarity of their personal goals and foster a positive mindset and self-image. This will positively contribute to the co-creation of our societies, especially after recovering from Covid. The project represents a key long-term investment in human capital and assures the sustainability impacts of YOUHEAL in the upcoming years.

Project activities

YOUHEAL will mostly be implemented within three main activity types: project results, multiplication events, and training activities. In addition, implementation will include evaluation and validation activities, ensuring high quality and relevance of the outputs, dissemination activities, which will promote the project outputs and make them widely visible, and project sustainability, which will ensure that the project outputs will benefit the stakeholders even after the end of the project.
