In MIOS-activities, we promote mental well-being and inclusion of immigrants, while also aiming to prevent a sense of isolation. During the project, we will adapt MIELI’s existing group work models in co-creation with immigrants to support particularly their needs.We implement group activities with immigrants across Finland. In these, we create peer support, increase knowledge about mental health, get to know local areas and carry out meaningful activities according to the group’s objectives.
We will also produce a self-help application to strengthen the immigrants’ mental health skills. This application will be based on our Mental Health First Aid training.
