The TAMUS project supports European families in managing their mental health.

GA number: 2022-1-DE02-KA220-ADU-000085693

Funded by: Erasmus+      Duration: 10/2022-10/2024


Promoting positive mental health for citizens of all ages should be a government priority as it reflects overall societal well-being. Despite its significance, the WHO reports that neuropsychiatric disorders account for 26% of the disease burden in the EU, with depression being the leading cause. Additionally, up to 50% of chronic sick leave in European workplaces is due to depression and anxiety.


TAMUS aims to empower parents to actively discuss and address mental health issues within their families. By implementing family-centered educational interventions, it seeks to enhance parents’ knowledge and awareness, enabling them to protect their mental health and foster positive mental health and well-being of their children.


The training program aims to help parents promote positive mental health among all members of their families. The training program includes the following modules: Introduction to Mental Health in Families, Facilitating Family Learning and using the TAMUS Toolkit, and Using Creative and artistic to encourage communication in families.

The family learning toolkit includes comics, audiobooks, and magazines for children, teenagers, and older adults. The resources support all family members in developing positive mental health behaviors, habits, and mindsets.

The aim of in-service training for Adult and Family Educators is to equip them with the skills and knowledge to effectively train parents on mental health and well-being. This training will enhance their understanding of mental health issues and develop their digital competencies, enabling them to create their own digital learning resources for European families.
