Will your school or municipality prevent bullying, exclusion and mental health problems?

Will your school or municipality prevent bullying, exclusion and mental health problems?

MOT works to develop robust young people and class cultures where everyone is included. We believe this is the key to creating a warmer and safer society.

MOT prevents and protects against the most negative effects in adolescence. 7 out of 10 young people who have MOT at school say that MOT helps them to be themselves, and that MOT contributes to a classroom environment where no one is on the outside.

Schools that follow the MOT programmes experience less bullying, fewer young people without a single friend, fewer mental health problems and less substance abuse.

The MOT Programmes

Among the factors that make MOT unique are the five programmes in schools and local communities, with a 50-50 focus on the individual and on the group. The programmes strengthen the individual’s robustness and awareness and promote robust and constructive relationships – safe class environments, inclusive school cultures and sustainable local communities.
