It is well known that both the mental health and labor market participation of refugees are often problematic. This relationship is twofold: on the one hand, mental problems hinder the chances of participation, on the other hand, unemployment negatively effects mental health. In practice, little attention is being paid to this relationship. For this reason, scholars of Radboud University developed Mosaic: a positive psychology course aimed at improving the mental health and (labor market) participation of Syrian refugees.
Mosaic was developed and implemented in collaboration with the target group itself and with relevant local organizations: GGD, Vluchtelingenwerk, Pro Persona, Indigo, the municipality of Nijmegen and Yalla Foundation.
