Firstly, surveys will be sent to teachers, families and youths (200 surveys per stakeholder group) of the schools that already have committed to participate to detect their level of literacy in teaching resilience and psychoeducation, and regional needs on promoting youth’s mental health.
Secondly, the exploratory phase of co-creation process will be launched. In each pilot site, focus groups of teachers, families and youths will work separately to discover and understand the challenges of promoting mental health and resilience. Using distinct co-design methodologies, groups will formulate the challenges each of the groups face, select the most important resilience factors, and contribute in coming up with ideas of how to enhance these factors. The results from the focus groups work on challenges, protective factors and interventions will be collected, compared and analysed.
Based on the findings and the UPRIGHT framework, groups will work on the co-design and co-production of the core resilience intervention focusing on: program objectives, expected outcomes, appropriateness of the components, training techniques and activities to acquire expected knowledge and skills and duration of each component.
