The first lady showed the pages of the American version of the course, which explains in a form accessible to children what good physical, emotional and mental well-being is. There are also tips on overcoming fears and changes in life.

We live in times when such skills are no less important than knowledge of mathematics or biology. Especially mental health care skills,
– stressed Olena Zelenska.

The course is expected to be implemented from September 2024. By this time, its content will be adapted to the needs of Ukrainian children.

We would like to remind you that in May 2024, the Ministry of Education and Science completely rewrote the program of the discipline “Defense of Ukraine”. Already from September, schoolchildren will study according to the new program, and trainings have been organized to prepare teachers.
