Completed welfare consultants training.
Jurgita Juškienė, welfare consultant of Telšiai district, has already completed 6 months duration of training at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences and is already starting to provide consultations. Residents of the municipality of Telšiai district (over 18 years of age) who have mild symptoms of stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression and psychological adaptation problems are invited to register for the first consultation. Research-based cognitive and behavioral therapy methodologies are used during consultations.
The services provided by the Wellness Consultant are completely free of charge.
The project is implemented with the funds of the financial mechanism of the European Economic Area.
Made and displayed educational posters for the welfare consultant.
3 educational welfare consultant posters of different designs, adapted for different age groups, created for the project have already been displayed on the bulletin boards of various institutions in the Telšiai district. The posters present the idea of welfare consultants and provide contacts.
The focus of the posters became the slogan #Don’t be silent-talk. With this slogan, simply, understandably and clearly, residents of the Telšiai district who experience mild stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression and
signs of psychological adaptation problems
are invited to seek help with your problems from a well-being consultant. This allows it to be understood that the person applying will be understood,
he will be listened to, he will receive advice, he will be given help.
On March 17, the first publicity event for welfare consultants took place in the Telšiai County Business Incubator.
Residents of the Telšiai district were invited to the 1st publicity event, giving priority to those who feel mild symptoms of anxiety, stress, insomnia, depression or psychological adaptation problems, and those who believe that there are persons in their environment who experience the aforementioned disorders. During the event, the project, its goal and expected results were presented, and the services of welfare consultants were presented. Future welfare consultant Jurgita Juškienė was also invited to present herself at the event.
The welfare consultant spoke in more detail about the methods planned to be used during the consultations and invited everyone who encountered difficulties to register for a consultation. During the event, messages were read about good emotional well-being and positive thinking. The participants of the event took part in the discussion and performed practical tasks. During the break, the participants of the event were invited to enjoy coffee, tea and sweets, and the event was crowned by a quiz, after which all participants were awarded with the attribute of forming the opinion of a well-being consultant.
The attributes of opinion formation were produced.
In order to encourage the residents themselves to advertise the service of a welfare consultant, an opinion-forming tool was produced
(cloth bags, t-shirts, jackets, jumpers) with the slogan #Don’t be silent-talk promoting the services and benefits of a well-being consultant. Residents will use the distributed opinion-building tools in their daily lives to form a positive background for the services of welfare consultants and act as ambassadors for welfare consultants.
The attributes will be distributed during the publicity event.
A good emotional well-being is a condition for the happiness and well-being of an individual and society. Stress rates are particularly high in Lithuania – every second worker in our country suffers from stress at work. Stress in the work environment can cause difficult emotional experiences, damage mental and physical health. There is a lack of strengthening of mental health and emotional literacy among young people as well – today 58 percent. children and young people experience bullying and initiate it themselves. Wellness projects and programs for the retirement age group are mostly aimed at improving physical health. However, the mental health of the elderly requires the same attention as physical health.
The project “Implementation of the model of welfare consultants in the municipality of Telšiai district” is dedicated to the reduction and prevention of health inequalities in the municipality of Telšiai district. The project provides measures to improve the availability and quality of community mental health services.
One of the necessary conditions for the Lithuanian economy to become advanced, sustainable, inclusive and economic growth to be promoted is good mental health of the population. The implementation of the project will significantly contribute to the achievement of one of the national health protection strategic goals – taking care of the preservation and improvement of public health.
The project is implemented with the funds of the financial mechanism of the European Economic Area
