Our Time is collaborating with Iceland, Germany, and Spain in a new project funded by Erasmus+, the EU programme to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe. Once the project is completed, it can be implemented in schools in Reykjavik, Berlin, and Barcelona. A pilot training test will be carried out in Sant Vicenç dels Horts (one of our territory´s schools) for teachers and educators whose students have a parent suffering from a mental illness. Professionals from Fundació Orienta collaborate directly through the funding provided by Erasmus+.
KidsTime workshops, based on the same principle, are currently being held in these schools.
The Laugalækjarskóli School in Iceland says that “this work is very important and necessary for families”.
The project aims at training all secondary schools in the city to be able to identify and support this vulnerable and hidden group and the problems they face daily.
In July 2022, Our Time launched its first school project in Spanish, with a school awareness session in our territory with more than 50 professionals.
Workers were surveyed about what they learned after the session, and 92% reported that they felt more informed about it. 98% agreed that it is relevant to normalise conversations about mental illness in schools. 80% of staff confirmed that their classes included parents with mental illness.
We are providing training to over 150 teachers in three leading schools, including principals, assistant principals, SENDCos, teachers, counsellors, and after-school leaders. The schools are planning to integrate PHSE lessons into their curricula during the new school year, where they will be able to support, monitor, and progress families.
