WHO WE ARE
NGO " Well-being Lab" is a youth public organization, that consists of qualified psychologists, youth workers, project writers, facilitators, and trainers. We work with young people aged 18 to 30 years old and youth workers who work with young people in Malmö, Sweden, and other countries in Europe. The main areas of our work are non-formal education, youth inclusion, well-being, and mental health.
We use different approaches and methods in our work to bring the understanding of well-being, mental health, inclusion, and empathy-based communication. Our mission is to create a platform for young people from different backgrounds and youth workers in Sweden and abroad to talk about well-being and their mental health so that we can prevent burnout and mental health-related illnesses and live a healthier and more balanced life.
