At the 2017 Global Citizenship Conference, Junior Fellows formed five Project Teams in which they will work together to develop shared solutions for pressing issues. This is one of the teams.
How can our communities be more aware of the importance of Mental Health and support each other with the challenges to those suffering from mental illnesses? The team has looked at many different approaches and are exploring what works best in each of their context. Some are creating a program at their university on mental health and are currently exploring the needs and previous knowledge of students on that issue. Others are working to provide a space to talk about the individual struggles on mental health. And again others are working with young children in rural schools on the aspect of mental health.
If you're interested to get engaged and support the work of the team, get in touch with any of the Project Team members or their mentor Bridget.
