The event counted with 24 professionals from 13 NGO’s active in social, elderly, mental health and education sector.
During the event, CECD’s senior mentor, mentors and mentees gave testimonies about their experiences during the EMISC project cycles 1 and 2. The project was very well received by the professionals, with professionals attributing the high level of importance to EMISC's methodology in regard to personal, professional and attitudinal development. Almost all participants stated interest in applying EMISC methodology in their organisations.
The overall conclusion point that EMISC Curriculum strength is its methodology. Being able to introduce, adapt and deliver ECC training to teams that work in mental health was considered a great opportunity. However, the participants identifeid the costs it might involve as a potential bottleneck in implementing the methodology.
