Ward, Kerry , Ryan, Jennifer , & Barry, and Margaret M. (2017). A feasibility study report on the implementation of the revised MindOut programme in the youth sector in Ireland. National University of Ireland Galway: Health Promotion Research Centre.
The MindOut programme was originally developed in 2004 to promote the mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 15-18 years. Over the last eleven years it has been successfully implemented in post-primary schools and youth work settings across Ireland. In 2015 a major review of the programme was undertaken by the Health Promotion Research Centre at NUI Galway to take into account more recent research and knowledge in the area of young people’s mental health and wellbeing and include current issues of importance in young people’s lives. This review, funded by the Health Service Executive (HSE), resulted in the revised MindOut Programme being developed in collaboration with the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI). Further details of the re-development process may be found in Dowling, Clarke and Barry (2016).
