Third Transnational Meeting,
The third transnational project meeting took place via Skype on the 12th and 13th of November 2020, giving partners the time to discuss key milestones and upcoming work. Now that IO1 has finished and we are halfway through IO2, the main focus of the meeting was to discuss the progress of the Benchmarking Tool. For this we looked over each question in detail as well as the digital platform, finalising all design choices. We also discussed the methodology and requirement for the piloting which will take place in January and February 2021. IO3 has just started so on the second day we discussed the work plan for IO3 - the development of the Mental Health Champion Skills Profile - and the requirements for the upcoming research phase in January which will allow us to determine the key skills and experience required for this role. To finish we discussed dissemination and quality as well as general project management.
Second Transnational Meeting,
The second transnational project meeting took place via Skype on the 18th and 19th of June 2020, due to the global pandemic preventing travel. Despite being held online, the meeting was still very productive and gave the partnership the chance to discuss the progress of the project. IO1 and the first draft of the MH+ Charter was discussed, which will inform the Benchmarking Tool for IO2. The development of the Benchmarking Tool was also discussed among partners, and this was done by looking at the Gender+ Benchmarking Tool and considering the ways it could be adapted for this project. The second day focused on project dissemination and quality, and also allowed us to complete the Impact+ exercise again as we each have a better understanding of the project and the target audiences.
We are looking forward to developing each of these resources, and keep an eye out for the MH+ Charter!
