What is the Nordic Network on mental well-being among young people in the Nordic countries?

Denmark held the presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2020 and initiated an interdisciplinary priority project entitled Nordic Youth in Sustainable Communities. The project runs from 2020 to 2022 and consists of three tracks, where The Nordic Network manages the third track. The Network consists of representatives from the national boards of health, welfare and/or social services in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The project is carried out with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers.
