The “Me-We” project aims to systematise knowledge on adolescent young carers in six European countries

“Me-We”– an abbreviation for Psychosocial Support for Promoting Mental health and wellbeing among adolescent young carers in Europe- is an ambitious research and innovation project, funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme.

The overall goal of the project is to strengthen the resilience of Adolescent Young Carers in the transition to adulthood (15-17 years old) in order to impact positively on their mental health and well-being and to mitigate the negative influence of psychosocial and environmental factors in their lives.

The objectives of the “Me-We” project are:

  • To systematise knowledge on adolescent young carers in six European countries (Sweden, Slovenia, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and UK) by (a) identifying their profiles, needs and preferences; b) analysing national policy, legal and service frameworks and (c) reviewing good practices, social innovations and evidence;
  • To co-design, develop and evaluate together with adolescent young carers, a framework of effective and multicomponent psychosocial interventions for primary prevention and focused on improving their mental health and well-being, to be tailored to each country contexts;
  • To carry out wide knowledge translation actions for dissemination, awareness promotion and advocacy, by spreading results among relevant stakeholders at national, European and international level.
