RWS implements five interventions that aim to promote mental health among migrant and refugee youth in six countries’ school settings. In Finland RWS implemented the In-Service Teacher Training (INSETT) programme coupled with Teaching Recovery Techniques (TRT) and the Peer Integration and Enhancement Resource intervention. In this study protocol you can read about how the project evaluates the effectiveness of these interventions on the mental health of refugee and migrant students. We also describe for which student groups the interventions may work the most effectively, and what conditions (e.g. school, parent and student characteristics) may shape these outcomes.* Read the full article here.
