During the exploratory phase a strong synergy will take place between tasks framework in WP2 and WP3. UPRIGHT core intervention co-design (WP2) and the incorporation of cultural elements boosting program appeal, appropriateness, efficacy and stakeholder engagement (WP3) will occur simultaneously.
The co-creation process will be based on group dynamics with teachers, families and youths. The process consists of two different phases: i) exploratory phase and ii) confirmatory phase. The former intends to identify the challenges related to promoting mental health and resilience, and codesign and co-produce the core resilience intervention; whereas, the latter aims to validate and co-customize the core intervention ensuring regional needs and particularities are met. During the exploratory phase, separate working groups with youths, families and teachers will be organized in each pilot site to gather information on cultural differences in languages, computer literacy, reading levels, educational levels of stakeholders (T3.1). These working groups will also serve to discover and understand the challenges of promoting mental health and resilience (T2.2).
The information collected in the working groups will be used to perform a thematic comparative analysis and then integrated to adapt the core program, developed in WP2, to regional contexts.
