Mental  Health Education and Advocacy

Our goal is to promote and contribute to the larger conversation in community about what mental health is about, and what it is not about. We do this by building community, educating on mental health and promoting empathy and awareness among Kenyans about mental health.


About Us

We are a group of young people passionate about mental health, and eager to discuss about this crucial topic. Some of us have lived experiences with mental illness, have relatives/friends who have mental illnesses, or are curious about educating ourselves and others on mental health. Either way, we are a growing group of activists and advocates for mental health education
