NATIONAL LEVEL

22 partners from 14 different European countries—Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Gibraltar, Estonia, Portugal, Hungary, and Lithuania—as well as Australia and Israel—make up the BootStRaP consortium.

9 distinct European nations with varying socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds—the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, Lithuania, and Switzerland—participate in evaluation and intervention studies involving adolescents. Young people from these same countries will participate in co-creation activities that involve the evaluation of acceptability and usability, facilitated by Euro Youth Mental Health (EYMH), a European stakeholder, with an aim to improve the validity of our results in various cultural contexts.

By incorporating the strong global networks of scientists and stakeholders, we will make it easier for the results to be widely disseminated, going beyond the boundaries of the participating nations and carefully and thoughtfully reaching out to other continents.

Countries whose young people are participating in the study are marked with flags below. Lists of participating schools will be readily available in the country-specific information.
