World Health Mental Day 2018

Due to the dynamic nature of society, young adults struggle to keep up. In trying to adapt, 40% of young adults fall into depression, intoxication, and drug abuse; in rare cases, resulting in death as a result of suicidal thoughts.

In a country like ours, there is an increasing rate of mental illness, especially amongst young people. In line with this year’s World Mental Health theme: “Young people in a changing society”, we collaborated with Heart Rose foundation to host students from schools across the Lagos metropolis to enlighten students and teachers on the dangers of mental health. This held on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at the Inside Out Studio Ilupeju Lagos.
