Building social and emotional skills
to BOOST mental health resilience
in children and young people in Europe

BOOST is the result of a cooperative effort between different stakeholders in the field of health research, dissemination, education, and policy making. Through the development of an innovative approach, it aims to promote mental health and well-being in the young. Mental well-being is central to population health and well-being. Not ensuring mental well-being can place a great burden on the individual and society. Therefore, it is important to promote prevention interventions that create resilience with long-lasting effects.
