Mental health education forms a key part of what we do. Which is why we were concerned when the Health Literacy Survey Malta 2014 Report found that 45.7% of the Maltese population had difficulty or did not know where to find information on how to manage very common mental health problems, like stress and depression. We had to do something about this.
In order to address this, Richmond Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry for Education and Employment, were awarded funding under the Operational Programme II – European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-2020 – for a project entitled Mental Health First Aid Youths.
Through training, material and online resources the project sought to equip the following groups as Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAs): Educators to be able to help students, Managers and supervisors at work to help young employees, and Youth to be able to help and reach out to their teenage peers.
The project was part-financed by the European Union European Social Fund (ESF). Co-financing rate: 80% European Union; 20% Richmond Foundation Funds. Below you will find the call for tenders for various services required, the schedule of bidders and the notice of awards.
