M4PRIS – Peer Mentoring Programme for Prison Staff




The M4Pris: Peer mentoring programme for prison staff project is co-funded by the European Union and implemented by seven (7) organisations in five (5) European countries (Denmark, Portugal, Romania, Belgium, Greece).

M4Pris aims to provide prison staff with a state-of-the-art peer mentoring programme to tackle:

  • mental health issues;
  • job burnout, and

The project presents an innovative and cost-effective way to prison staff training, driven by a green training methodology through the delivery of a blended format training, with ramifications and benefits to the Criminal Justice System as a whole, given the cornerstone importance of prison personnel for inmate’s rehabilitation and successful daily management of prisons.
