Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing

(best accessed by Edge or Firefox internet browsers)


The key objective of IA 3.3 is to "enhance the capacity of children and young people to form positive and effective relationships with others of a different background and make a positive contribution to the creation of a cohesive society.”

It will result in an increase in the percentage of the youth population in receipt of best practice mental health supports developed and delivered on a collaborative, cross-border basis; which enhance emotional resilience and make a contribution to peace and reconciliation across the Programme Area.

An indicative budget allocation has been set at €25 million  for this Investment Area.



The following organisations have provided their details and are available to contact in relation to potentially forming a partnership for this Investment Area of the EU PEACEPLUS Programme.
