Partners of the DASS consortium met for the 4th time in Krakow, hosted by the Polish partner Diversity HUB. On 28 – 29 September, the consortium had the opportunity to revise the contents created until now and to plan the development and release of the Mind-yourself APP.

The app will be available in 6 languages (English, French, Italian, Greek, Polish, and Lithuanian) is a self-help resource that can be used individually by youth, without a youth worker, at any time and in any place. The app is thought to help young people reduce stress and develop strategies to deal with stressors as they present themselves in daily life. The app’s contents – activities, strategies, tips – will combine mindfulness, art, and dance. These contents are provided in several different formats, such as audio, videos, and art activities, to maintain the interest of its users and to cater to the preferences and needs of different individuals. Users will be also guided by a colorful mascotte, designed by CEIPES, that will explain step by step how to use the app and that will provide young people useful tips for a healthy lifestyle and take care of their mental health.

From December to January the app will be tested with a group of young people in each partner’s Country. Youth will have the opportunity to benefit from the app and to suggest further improvements that will be realized by the end of the project.
