L.I.K.E. – Life Investment is the Key to Employment 2019

L.I.K.E. looks at the rising percentage of young people aged 15-29 with mental health problems in Europe and the inability of conventional employment methods to meet their specific needs for this target. The wide partnership in the consortium is working internationally, seeking common European solutions for social inclusion and quality and sustainable employment for young people with mental health problems. Experts in some of the best functioning state social systems such as Norway and Iceland will seek to reduce Europe’s social and economic disparities and build bilateral cooperation in this area.

The conducted international studies will present the necessary data for the creation of an innovative multilateral approach to include the target group – youths with mental health problems in the 15-29 age group, with a special focus on the Roma population.

Project goals:

  1. To strengthen the social inclusion and employment of the target group by exploring the status of young people by developing, testing and implementing an innovative methodology that meets their needs and engaging the whole community in the process (relatives, employers and institutions).
  2. To create the “Hidden Likes” youth house – a place where young people receive support, mentoring and understanding by engaging in numerous activities together with their friends and families, seeking to become active in the labor market.
