About the volunteering opportunity

Support us in the conception of workshops on mental health in schools

You support us together with other volunteers in the conception of workshops on mental health in schools. The workshops should last 2 - 3 school hours. Target group: Pupils starting at age 14 (8th grade). In addition to an introductory workshop, we want to offer in-depth workshops on various aspects of the topic.

FOR EXAMPLE: What are feelings and how can I deal with them? Where can I find help? What do I do if someone in my class has psychological problems? What strengthens my mental health? etc.

This way you can help

Your Tasks

Together with others you will design different workshops. If you are interested, you can learn from our experts about mental health / dealing with mental illness. After a successful qualification, you will go to schools and run the workshops in pairs.

Whats needed

- solid basic knowledge, e.g. as a student in psychology, medicine, health or social sciences

- first experiences with workshops and lectures

- self-confidence and confident appearance

You will fit into our team if

- you enjoy passing on your knowledge to other young people.

Beyond the concept, it would be really wonderful if you could imagine informing and educating students about mental health / dealing with mental problems and diseases (maybe together with a friend)
