Support School Mental Health Intervention Programs

Support School Mental Health Intervention Programs

We are in the exciting planning stages before the launch of our school-based mental health literacy program. We are collaborating with a secondary school in Dar. We look forward to sharing more when the project starts. 

We are noticing increasing cases of mental health challenges among students and young people. Our youth are particularly at risk of mental disorders and healthcare systems are not well equipped to deal with all of them. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), much of adult mental ill-health begins in adolescence, with an estimated 75% of all lifetime mental disorders occurring before the age of 25.

One of our goals for teaching mental health literacy is to reduce the burden on mental health care systems. Investing in students’ mental health also improves academic achievement rates, and decreases grade retention and drop outs.
