The Swedish public service television company published an article about the HAND in HAND project on their website. They wrote that students and staff in a total of 48 high schools in Sweden, Germany, Slovenia and Croatia will be testing a new model that will hopefully lead to fewer students experiencing mental health in the future. According to a recent report from the Swedish Public Health Agency, mental health issues among 13- and 15-year-olds has doubled in Sweden over the period 1985-2014. This negative development needs to be addressed and a change in working methods at schools is called for. The EU project, HAND in HAND, will hopefully contribute to this.
