Building on the social impact of previous EU research in the field of education and mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), REFUGE-ED identified, implemented and evaluated evidence-based practices in education and MHPSS that have been shown to promote educational success, well-being and sense of belonging for all children, focusing on those in recent migration cohorts, refugees and asylum seekers, unaccompanied minors, including those residing in hotspots, reception/identification centres and institutionalised care. This was done through a dialogic process of co-creation, involving all members of the education community (children and families, civil society organisations and local service providers, schools, and teaching staff; including school counsellors or other focal points focusing on MHPSS needs in education; and policy makers working in different educational settings).

At this point, this report synthesises lessons learned and best practices towards the end of the project period. At the same time, it suggests effective strategies and actions not only for the pilots involved, but especially for those interested in implementing them.
