Introduction to wellbeing & MHPSS
Recently, the training “Introduction to wellbeing & MHPSS” took place. With this training, we aim to introduce elements of well-being, mental health and MHPSS, as well as ways of identification, referral guidelines and good practices. It was addressed to Amurtel’s team.
The goal of this training for the participants:
👉Create a dialogue about well-being, mental health and MHPSS (perceptions and definition).
👉Understand emotions, why they exist and how they work.
👉Get familiarised with the concept of stress and the theory of Window of Tolerance.
👉Understand the notions of adversity, related reactions and coping strategies.
👉Increase awareness about MHPSS principles.
👉Get to know the overview of mental health professionals in Greece (role and responsibilities).
👉Get familiarised with identification-referral guidelines & good practices.
During the training, there was space for group discussion and questions, where the participants could share personal experiences, questions and concerns.
