October 2015: Change your view - change the world!
With the project "Change your view - change the world!" we informed and educated young people on how to effectively deal with different factors that reduce our quality of life. We’ve prepared a series of 4 lectures which covered areas that professionals and young people themselves recognize as the most challenging (stress, mental disorders, continuous time pressure, and troubles in personal relationships).
We achieved the following objectives:
Open discussions on the issues that the public considers a "taboo" topic.
We’ve helped to educate young people on how to identify signs of trouble by themselves and how to be as independent as possible when trying to eliminate them.
Awareness on young people's mental health issues.
The lectures were very well perceived – the reported attendance was around 200 people and the event was also noted by a number of relevant Slovenian media.
