School visits

Our visits last about 1.5h and consist of a general part on mental health and the personal part where Ambassadors tell their own story. Our Ambassadors have all attended a workshop with Prof. Dr. Stefanie Schmidt, Professor of Clinical Psychology in Childhood and Adolescence at the University of Bern, and tell their story in a framework that is appropriate and adapted to the school level, age and story. Neither details nor exact descriptions of certain parts of the story, which could be chilling, traumatizing or disturbing for the students (adolescents), are mentioned. This is to protect our Ambassadors and the students. In addition, an expert always accompanies the school visit, who could also answer questions of the students that cannot or do not want to be answered by the Ambassador. Visits are carried out for young people from the age of 12.

 

Before each school visit, there is a discussion between us and the person who requested the school visit to clarify if a school visit is possible. The Ambassador:in then also contacts the organizing person and the Expert:in to clarify organizational details. There is a contract between ZETA Movement and the school. However, this only serves to ensure that the school takes all (legal) measures so that such a school visit can be carried out. These vary from canton to canton.

 

Our school visits are free of charge, but donations are always welcome. It is best to request a school visit 4-6 weeks in advance, but it may also be possible to find an available Ambassador more spontaneously. It is not possible to "pick" a specific disease pattern, but if there are good reasons, it is possible to see together if it is possible to request someone with a specific disease pattern. 

 

We are happy to be contacted via info@zetamovement.com !

FEEDBACK

“I think it's beautiful how, at the end of the day, any discomfort shared makes us feel less alone.
