What will 2020 bring to ENVTL?

Dear ENVTL friends and acquaintances!

We are most pleased to announce that we received support from the Active Citizens' Fund this year!

Funded by Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, the Active Citizens' Fund supports organizations to reduce economic and social inequalities in Central and Southern Europe as well as in the Baltics. The Estonian Youth Mental Health Movement (ENVTL) applied for funding for the project "Strategic Involvement of Young People in the Mental Health Movement."

In the course of the project, a development plan ensuring the sustainability of the organization will be completed. As a young organization, we do not have long-term plans in place, nor do we have the skills to make those plans. We want to grow our membership, but at the same time learn to involve our members more. We review what the vision and goals of our organization are and how to facilitate their fulfillment.

With a view to the Estonian Youth Mental Health Movement as a voice for young people in society, we are organizing four trainings that would help our members to better orient themselves in the complex landscape of advocacy. These trainings provide members with the skills to speak more in project management and communication issues at ENVTL, as well as additional skills in personal life.

Thanks to the project, we can offer our members background experience counseling this year. An experienced counselor is a trained person who has experience of a mental disorder and who can support young people on their journey and help them seek professional help.

ENVTL wants to provide a community that supports mental health, where it is possible to realize and develop one's skills in a safe environment.

The project will run from April 2020 to the end of May 2021. If you have any questions about the project, please contact Birgit Malken birgit@envtl.ee.
