The News

  • “[Since the workshops,] clients help each other, and refer their friends to come and speak to me and their teachers about mental health problems, because they no longer see it as illness, but part of their settlement process that needs to be addressed and taken care with the help of professionals and other community members. They are spreading the word about the importance of mental health, and emotional well-being.”
