Mental Health Power - A youth workers' guide to promoting mental health

Mental Health Power

The promotion of mental health is one of the day-to-day objectives of youth work. An appreciative and unrushed approach, positive feedback and encouragement are important resources for young people. Leading a balanced life, practising emotional skills and strengthening coping strategies support mental health along with the ability to talk about your worries and the courage to seek help when necessary.
Providing young people with the ingredients for healthy development, happiness, strength and courage enforce their mental health. It also increases their opportunities for active participation.
The Mental Health handbook provides information, exercises and practical ideas for youth work with an aim to strengthen young people’s mental health skills. The book also boosts the resources and occupational health and wellbeing of those working in youth services.
