Project ZüMPG

Information on the mental health of children and adolescents

The Zurich Migration Project for Strengthening the Mental Health of Children and Adolescents (Zürcher Migrationsprojekt zur Stärkung der psychischen Gesundheit bei Kindern und Jugendlichen, ZüMPG) aims to deepen knowledge of mental health issues among migrant children and their parents. The project includes events offering information and discussions in addition to information stands, media reports (print, online portals, podcasts, local radio) and the targeted distribution of relevant material. These activities are intended to raise motivation, awareness and the ability of the migrant population to strengthen the mental health of their family members.

FISP offers information and discussion events events on the topics mentioned below. Based on the information received, parents with a migrant background will learn the meaning of mental health and will be in a position to strengthen the mental health of their children. Informational events will be conducted by trained presenters with a migrant background.
