The ACE (Adolescents Coping with Emotions) project was developed as an early intervention program for young people with depression. It is a school-based cognitive-behavioural program that aims to improve young people's resilience by teaching effective coping strategies. The program is aimed at 12- to 15-year-olds and is implemented in group sessions that involve learning new skills, role-plays, exercises, fun activities and individual discussion. ACE has demonstrated that effective mental health interventions that promote emotional health can be delivered in schools.
