Depression Can Not Be Barrier For Youth

Training Course

1-9 May 2020 | Banská Štiavnica, Slovak Republic

Our project activities are to improve their ability to communicate with depressed unhappy young people and to share experiences of existing knowledge with our other participants.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that in 2030 depression will become the world's most common disease, while 350 million people around the world are affected by the depression (2012 news), it says depression will be the second widespread disease all around the world. While depression is growing rapidly, specialists of the subject are discussing whether medication is needed in the treatment of depression and they are discussing psychotherapy. (2014 news) These statistics are statistics on diagnosed people. There are people who are so close to being diagnosed and showing many symptoms of depression.

Our goal in carrying out this project is to contribute to providing that the World Health Organization's estimate for 2030 is wrong. 90% of people who kill themselves are depressed. Every 42 seconds in the world, one person attempts suicide to end his / her life, and every 17 minutes one person loses his / her life due to suicide. Nowadays suicide age ranks third among the causes of death for adolescents and young adults between 15 and 24 years. These statistics mean that, while only this paragraph was written, about 100 people attempted suicide due to depression. In this world, a lot of people in the world are dying from a lot of things.

We are aware of this and we have learned to protect ourselves by saying "we have nothing to do", "our power is not enough"

Accommodation and food

Vilabela is located in a small village named Banská Belá, not far from historic town Banská Štiavnica. As its name suggests, it is a beautiful place, calm and magical, full of surprises and secrets to discovering them. Maybe they are hiding in one of the thematic rooms  perhaps in the garden around, and you may discover them in your own hands in one of creative workshops too.  And when you get tired of discovering, you can relax in the sauna, wellness, play with animals or simply be and inhale the magic of this unique place.
