The project partners will do a study on young people with mental health problems and develop new methods to help this group get an education and a job. The project partners will work together with their families, employers and mental health institutions. They will establish youth houses called ‘Hidden Likes’ in which the youngsters will experience a supportive environment. By overcoming isolation and increase their motivation, they will get a mentor to help them in their training for local jobs.

Target groups:

  • Long-term unemployed young people aged 25-29 with mental health problems
  • Roma and other minority groups
  • Relatives and families of young people with mental health problems
  • Local employers
  • Mental health specialists
