And we are gradually getting the point in our lives where talking globally about menstrual health and it's full circle relation to mental health is not frowned upon.
It was thus with so much excitement that I honoured an invitation by the Gweth Foundation in Kenya and her partners last 28th August 2020 to talk about menstrual health and mental health.
The focus of our discussions was on discussing different issues around menstruation; challenges faced by girls especially in low and middle income countries, stigma around menstruation and the different support tools available or needed to help the girl child to manage their mental health, during her menstrual cycle.
Some key points like how poor menstrual hygiene can affect one's mental health and how lack of hygiene items can affect youths in the various communities and many other pertinent topics where captured.
A recognition certificate from the Gweth Foundation, after my authentic and impact participation on their event makes my awareness and sensitization work on mental health matters, and my ready her participation at similar events worth it.
