OK2Talk is an initiative that primarily champions the overall wellness of the underserved youth. By donating to this campaign, you are supporting Trybe's services and programmes that look after our clients' emotional and mental well-being.
At-risk behaviours among youths are caused by external factors and internal conflicts. However, disadvantaged youths find it difficult to navigate these internal issues on their own. If left unaddressed, risky behaviours due to their emotional and psychological concerns will eventually cause them harm.
While external factors such as financial concerns, family issues, education and employment problems are relatively easier to detect, the youths' internal conflicts must also be addressed. And to be able to tackle these less visible issues, we must encourage them to share their stories, let them know that it is OK2Talk, and that programmes and services such as ours are available.
When addressed early on, professional services can help teens develop healthy coping mechanisms and strengthen their emotional and mental resilience that will follow them into adulthood.
