Saving and Empowering Young Lives in Europe
SEYLE is a health promoting program for adolescents in European schools. Its main objectives are to lead adolescents to better health through decreased risk-taking and suicidal behaviors, to evaluate outcomes of different preventive programs and to recommend effective culturally adjusted models for promoting health of adolescents in different European countries. Because of the significance of the SEYLE program and the importance of suicide research, Israel is honored to take part in this program and be a collaborator in it's implementation and research.
In this health promotion program, a pilot intervention study will be implemented to assess the effects of three different health promoting / suicide prevention programs in 11,000 students across 11 European countries (Sweden, Austria, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Romania, Slovenia and Spain): 1. A general health promotion program targeting students' awareness on healthy/unhealthy behaviours and students' self-efficacy in diminishing unhealthy behaviours; 2. ProfScreen - screening by professionals of at-risk students through a questionnaire. For adolescents identified as high risk (screen positives) the program includes referral to mental health treatment and ensuring compliance. 3. QPR (Question, Persuade & Refer) - a gatekeepers' program, training all adult staff at schools (teachers, counselors, nurses etc.) and parents on how to recognize & refer a student with risk-taking behaviours or suffering from mental illness to mental-health help resources.
Each of these prevention programs uses a different active component in order to be successful. The first prevention program empowers the students by increasing their self-efficacy. The second prevention program (ProfScreen) empowers mental health professional in identifying subjects at risk. The third program (QPR) empowers teachers and parents in at-risk case finding and referring to mental health facilities.
