Promoting mental and emotional health in the ENHPS : a training manual



This project is part of the European Network of Health Promoting Schools (ENHPS), which is a joint and co-operative activity between the World Health Organisation, the Commission for the European Communities and the Council of Europe (1993).
The courses and the manual have been developed in close consultation with ENHPS co-ordinators, teachers and others involved in school health education in central and eastern Europe. Mental and emotional health have always been central to the ENHPS philosophy, and were identified by those working in central and eastern Europe as essential priorities in their task of developing healthy schools. The sheer amount and accelerating nature of the change that these countries have experienced in a very short time has meant that issues concerning mental health, relationships, communication between generations, the management of stress and the management of change are seen as especially key.
