Chapéu-de-Chuva’s main goal is the promotion of mental health of children, from 6 to 11, who live in foster care institutions. This intervention is based on two general goals: the development of the psychological well-being and the adaptation to life contexts. The project included 60 minute-long weekly sessions with the children, open sessions with the community to promote active participation and also individual psychological assessment and counselling.

Between 2009 and 2011, Chapéu-de-Chuva was funded by the Portuguese High Commissioner for Health.
