Mental Health Workshop

The Outreach Foundation Community Development Workers were invited by the Ingelosi Foundation to facilitate a Mental Workshop at Ukhamba Mansions on March 16th.

The workshop aimed to address critical issues related to mental health among young people aged 15 to 19.

As per the recent survey that was conducted among their learners and the increasing rate of teenage suicide and bullying, the focus was also on empowering them and providing self-help strategies for those who are not coping well due to anxiety, stress, and anger.

There were 32 attendees; therefore, community development workers also had one-on-one sessions at the end of the workshop to support learners who needed professional intervention through counselling.
