Positive Mental Health for Gen Z – NO MOre Fear of Missing Out


Welcome to the NOMO FOMO project. What is the NOMO FOMO project? NOMO FOMO – Positive Mental Health for GEN Z – NO MOre Fear of Missing Out is an innovative project that addresses a need for intervention in the positive mental health and wellbeing of young people. This project contextualises the need for the promotion of positive mental health among Generation Z, and identifies the many stressors imposed on today’s young digital natives.


In today’s world, technology and social media has become a constant in the lives of Generation Z. It is important now more than ever, to address the impact and consequences of this round-the-clock presence for young people. NOMO FOMO addresses this in the hope to allow young people to be aware of how digital media can play an important role in identity building. This project provides a toolkit of interactive learning resources to address the FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) – of being unpopular, uninteresting, unattractive, unworthy, unfriendly, unkind, uncaring that young people experience throughout the “distorted realities” that are displayed on social media.


The NOMO FOMO project addresses the needs of young people today and aims to promote an accessible learning approach that promotes positive mental health. To achieve these objectives, the NOMO FOMO partners are collaborating together throughout the term of the project to produce the following innovative learning materials: The project offers a range of interactive infographics, training programmes and a MOOC. This equips youth workers, peer leaders and young people with the necessary skills and competences to understand the impact of FOMO and social media in today’s world.
