Digital Storytelling Toolkit launched at the SOLIS meeting in Norway

The SOLIS partnership met in Hamar, Norway, at the end of January to work together on the final steps to complete all the intellectual outputs. The Storytelling Academy was represented by Dr Antonia Liguori (project coordinator) and Dr Fred Dalmasso.

In addition to what was planned at the initial planning stage, the UK team presented the Digital Storytelling Toolkit, developed in collaboration with Mental Health Foundation, as part of the pilot phase.

The Digital Storytelling Toolkit has been designed to help young people have better conversations around mental health and wellbeing.
Using insights we gained during a series of six storytelling workshops with students ages 13-16, researchers from Loughborough University have developed this resource to help young people talk about mental health and wellbeing in smaller groups.

When done mindfully, discussing the provided materials and prompts in groups can help them improve their sense of connection and belonging, as well as their self-awareness.
