Information about Mental Health Without Borders as an organization and further details about the Youth Exchange 2022 programme.
Mental Health Without Borders is an Erasmus+ funded youth exchange programme which will take place in April 2022 in Tallinn, Estonia.
If you are from one of the participant countries you can apply in that country group. If you are residing in a participant country, you can also apply to that country group. You must be residing in a participant country during the time of the exchange (ex. You are an exchange student from Spain that is living in Finland. You can apply to the Finland country group even if Spain isn’t a participant country). Proof of residence/study in the participant country may be required.
Selected participants are responsible for the purchase of their tickets with support from their organizations/informal groups and the MHWB core team.
We encourage the use of green travel, which includes trains, buses and ride sharing. The main arrival points in Tallinn are the Tallinn Central Bus Station, Tallinn Balti Railway Station (Balti jaam) or the Lennart Meri International Airport.
The venue is easily accessible by public transportation and the taxi app Bolt.
The entire group will be staying at the Old Town Munkenhof Guesthouse in Tallinn, Estonia. The venue is in the historical city centre.
Yes, the schedule is very flexible. The present schedule is a general guideline and can change at any moment. Check the schedule regularly for updates. As the programme start date gets closer, the schedule is due to change. This is because accepted participants will contribute to the planning of activities and the final schedule.
Young people are actively involved in all stages (planning, preparation, implementation and follow-up) of the Mental Health Without Borders project. Therefore, the schedule is designed by the participants and can be modified during the youth exchange. Participants also have the possibility to fill up the open space and free time portions of the week as they see fit.
The participants have the opportunity to arrive one day earlier and depart one day after the end of the youth exchange. Accommodation and meal expenses for extra days unfortunately cannot be reimbursed under Erasmus+ rules.
You may bring food, drinks, music, modern or traditional, that you want to share with others during the intercultural and other evenings. Bringing different games to be used during informal moments is welcomed! A more detailed list will be shared before the start of the exchange.
You may also bring your computer or laptop.
Youth Exchanges bring together groups of young people from two or more countries, providing them with an opportunity to meet, discuss, and confront various themes, while learning about each other’s countries and cultures.
The exchanges are open to all European young people, regardless of their background, education, or socio-economic status. Participants must be between 13 and 30 years old as well as a resident/citizen of one of the Erasmus+ Partner or Programme countries.
Youth Exchanges are intended to contribute to the personal development of the young participants as well as encourage and promote the personal and social education of young people, reinforcing their feeling of being European citizens.
The Erasmus+ Programme is the European Union’s programme which supports, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional and personal development of people in education, training, youth and sport, in Europe and beyond, thereby contributing to sustainable growth, quality jobs and social cohesion, to driving innovation, and to strengthening European identity and active citizenship.
No. Accepted participants do not have to pay a participation fee. Yay!
The Erasmus+ grant covers travel (up to the agreed upon travel cap), accommodation and meals for the duration of the youth exchange.
