The training is based on the resource Mindout which has been developed by Health Promotion HSE West and NUI Galway. MindOut is a twelve session mental health programme which takes a positive approach to the promotion of emotional and mental health among young people. The emphasis is on giving time to young people to explore what challenges their mental health and looking at the ways they cope ranging from personal coping skills to informal networks of support to professional or voluntary support services. All participants will recieve a copy of the MindOut resource pack and Good Habits of Mind support pack.
Training is carried out over 3 days. Following training day one and two participants go back to their organisation and begin to implemement the programme. Participants then return 6 weeks later for day three which includes a review, self-care for tutors and organisational issues.
