Intellectual Output 2:
Project training modules in theory IO2 will see the development of the contextualization and information modules, in order to provide background and context to the basic care provision modules which will follow. This will be particularly important in sensitizing users to the issue of mental health in rural areas, and why rural areas require different focus to urban ones in terms of marginalization, social inclusion and mental health. The themes of the modules will be finalized towards the second stage of the project, but the main points will include:

1. Social Services
– European Union and social policy
– different roles of social work in society
2. Community Development
– life-course approach in community work
– working with social issues in the local communities
3. Promotion of Social Inclusion
– challenges causing marginalisation e.g. unemployment, homelessness, poverty, loneliness
– methods decreasing inequality in social services
4. Promotion of the Health and Well-being of People in Danger of Marginalisation
– position of people with disabilities in different societies
– inclusion and exclusion in a society

Intellectual Output 3:
Project training modules in practise This Intellectual Output 3 will accompany the Intellectual Output 2 and the other training materials and it will be much more concrete and hands-on than the previous ones. These modules will genuinely provide an introduction to basic care provision in practise for those who are able to provide it, such as community leaders, church leaders, educators and others who come into contact with the rural target group – particularly teenagers and marginalized workers. The modules will be finalised towards the final stage of the project and are likely to cover the following areas: Introduction: how to deal with someone you think may be suffering from mental health issues

How to reassure them but also ensure they are aware of their needs
How to help them seek their own help/how to encourage them to talk to a professional
How to help community services cater for mental health issues

All partners will be working closely during the development of their own modules to ensure
consistency and a holistic approach to the issues at hand. Feedback from all partners will also be sought and provided at different stages of the elaboration process. A pilot course will be delivered and output quality indicators will be provided. The modules will then be delivered via the training platform in a user-friendly and accessible manner.
