Be Mindful project tackles the challenges of developing a tailor made mindfulness based training program designed purposely for mental health professionals (MHP) to help them build resiliency and find the appropriate response to difficult and distressing circumstances they experience day to day at their work. Additionally, the training program will provide the professionals with the tools necessary to apply the techniques directly with patients and clients suffering from mental illness.
The extensive experience of the partners in the project with the target groups- having worked over the years with both, mental health professionals and the patients with severe mental illlness- will help us to concentrate on the specific circumstances and needs that these collectives face on a daily basis. Participants can expect to enhance mental fitness and clarity, reduce stress responses, enhance creativity, develop greater self-awareness and emotional intelligence, develop better communication and decision-making skills, and experience greater overall wellbeing.
The resulting training program will be piloted with a total number of 32 MHP in Spain and Slovenia which will permit its testing and subsequent optimization before it’s made available for public use.
Professionals from all around Europe and beyond will be able to benefit from our tailor made training course thanks to its multilingual e-learning form. The access to the e-learning platform will be direct from the Be Mindful website.
