MINT (Mental health In Non-formal education and Training) is a 7-day log training course that aims to train participants - who are trainers - on acquiring a mental health perspective during their work and role as a trainer
-> what is a “mental health perspective”: we understand it as the awareness of people’s needs and boundaries to feel safe, comfortable and supported. This awareness shapes the trainers behaviours and approach to non-formal education so that they might provide a safe and inclusive learning atmosphere.
-> What trainers would benefit from this TAT? If you deliver with certain frequency (2 or more times per year) training courses with a duration of 3 days or more; if you deliver non-formal education sessions in you work or volunteering role on a continuous basis; if in either of these roles you have the ability to modify the courses’ learning environment and to build an atmosphere with participants; and if you meet this criteria and have a strong willingness to let this training challenge your perspective on your work and role, we are looking for you!
Priority will be given to trainers who attended a Train the Trainers course or similar with a duration of 3 days or more.
-> Program: the program will include sessions during which you will develop the skills and knowledge needed to work including a mental health perspective when working with co-trainers, dealing with participants, and when preparing yourself to deliver sessions and courses and taking care of yourself during them.
During the training you will contribute to develop a set of guidelines on how to integrate a mental health perspective in non-formal education. These guidelines will later receive feedback by a mental health professional and will be published and distributed. You will be given a chance to join the team in charge or finalizing them! As well, you will have the chance to receive funding to attend a Train the Trainers or Agora as trainer to share the knowledge you have acquired.
