iKhanda Mandla: Mind Power for Youth
Our programme focuses on building mental resilience among young people which impacts their general health and wellbeing. The aim is to raise awareness, which will assist in reducing stigma related to mental health; support early detection of mental health problems; signposting referral and support systems. The funding will be used to promote mental health literacy amongst high school students and provide them with tools to be mental health champions among their peer groups. The pilot programme will be rolled out in 4 schools with the hopes to expand to broader regions and more schools.
