School Tour Project

Widespread misunderstanding about mental health and what it entails played a vital role in encouraging disinterest in the subject matter among our population of interest. One of these misunderstandings is the confusion between mental health and mental illnesses.

As such, our team focused on disabusing their minds of misguided notions concerning mental health, properly introducing them to a much broader concept of mental health and what it entails, maintaining a healthy mental state, dealing with mentally challenging issues, and strongly discouraged substance use and abuse as a solution to the mentally challenging issues they face daily.

More specifically, the awareness workshop walked them through building personal capacity to thrive through anxiety, stress and depression. Beyond being aware, the 373 young people our team engaged with were greatly intrigued by the fact there are actions they can take to improve their state of mental well-being at any point in time!

For the staff and management of the institutions, our team’s efforts offered them the support they needed to intensify commitment towards ensuring that these young people develop and sustain healthy lifestyles. Healthy lifestyles not just for themselves, but also for their respective families, their communities, and the development of our dear nation at large.
