" The skills that I think I will be able to develop are coordination with a group and teamwork, with these skills I hope that patience comes with it. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: S.O.School
S.O.School’s aim was to create a community where students could express their feelings and hardships regarding mental health specifically linked to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought. Within August-November 2021 we created a weekly podcast where students could talk and learn about this important topic; as well as a downloadable manual that will aim to serve as a diary, planner, and mood-tracker, to help students identify the real causes of their daily stress.
