With mental health issues having been multiplied among young people on a global scale, UPRIGHT is a project that teaches the skills needed for good physical and mental health. It is being implemented in schools, and early adolescents, their families, and all school staff of the participating schools are involved.
UPRIGHT is a research project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. The acronym stands for "Universal Preventive Resilience Intervention Globally implemented in schools to improve and promote mental Health for Teenagers”. The aim of the project is to develop a mental well-being culture in Europe, by co-designing, delivering and validating a training programme on mental resilience through a whole-school approach. The programme was designed by psychologists, psycho-pedagogists, methodologists and ICT experts from around Europe.
UPRIGHT is based on four main components: coping, efficacy, social and emotional learning, and mindfulness. For each component, there is a theoretical part, followed by a practical one. By putting these skills into practice in their everyday life, pupils improve their own well-being, and that of their families.
