The project, launched in January 2018, has a duration of 4 years.

Many school-based Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programs have proven effective in increasing social well-being and academic achievement in children. The overall aim of the BOOST project is to develop, implement, and test a new SEL-based population approach to promote mental health and well-being in primary school children.

The approach will then be implemented in mainstream school environments and academic teaching by class-teachers themselves. This will ensure school acceptance of the approach and it will indirectly target many more children.

Through this cascade effect, the overall aim of increasing resilience and mental well-being in large and diverse populations of children will be obtained.
