Well-being at school -project
The Association for Mental Health in Vasa area and the Department of Psychology at Jyväskylä University have developed the mobile game Magis and a group model to strengthen children’s mental health and prevent bullying. They make a stepwise staggered model for teaching well-being skills to children in grades 4-6 based on acceptance and value-based approaches. The ACT method, its principles and processes are used in both.
Magis is a learning game designed to improve psychological well-being. Since, many anti-bullying programmes involve a lot of time and effort from the school, teachers, and the parents, it has been important to develop an easily available psychological intervention for schools.
The Association for Mental Health in Vasa area and the Department of Psychology at Jyväskylä University collaborate with Vaasa City Primary Schools, Vaasa Region Associations, Vaasa Region Parents and Vaasa Youth Council.
Our team is developing methods to positively influence mental health, increase social and emotional skills, and prevent mental disorders. Contact us to learn more.
