Mental health is a level of psychological well-being, or an absence of a mental disorder; it is the “psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment”. Many of us may not even understand what that means. Perhaps we have taken the subject as a complex idea such that we do not know how to begin conversations regarding mental health even when the people we love are faced with mental illness.
This Saturday at Fatuma’s Voice, we partner with Relate Kenya to spark this talk. How do we face the reality of mental illness when it hits home? Who do we first approach for help? What are the signs? What is the basic information we need to grasp regarding this subject? How can we reduce stigmatization?
Sitawa Wafula of #MyMindMyFunk shall also be joining us alongside an array of poets and musicians to keep us educated and entertained. Tag a friend along. This is worth your attention.
