The OSCAR project aims to identify best practice in how organisations across the EU tackle the issue of student drop-out through having mental health challenges. It aims to take a wider view through the approach of identifying ways of enhancing positive wellbeing, as well as improving systems in mental health challenges.
Unfortunately, our Transnational Learning Activity (TNLA) which was due to take place in the Netherlands in May 2020, had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic. We eventually decided to move this to a remote session which took place over 4 days in January and February 2021.
The sessions that were attended by up to 30 teachers and staff, covered Mental Health First Aid sessions, and Service Design sessions delivered by D&A’s Service Design Academy aimed at allowing participants to generate user-orientated solutions within their organisations.
The ZAT team is grateful to the D&A Service Design Academy for the training carried out. We are currently preparing with questionnaires for our target groups in order to commence with Intellectual output 2.
