Mental health matters: Let's talk about it

About Your Initiative

I am working on a personal level and with my association Hope for the Abused and Battered to raise awareness on mental health matters, sensitize the population especially women how to take care of their mental health, and what to do when they have a mental health challenge or a mental illness.

I will use the virtual space most especially because with the current pandemic this is the best way to reach out to the beneficiaries. What's unique in my project and approach is that first I am taking on a taboo and stigmatized subject, and I am unapologetically using my lived experience.

I hope to impact people in my community and my country as a whole from both the English and French speaking region. I am looking at working with people with lived experiences of themselves and or their loved ones; as well as those who are still either ignorant or in denial.

Who is being impacted by my initiative?

women, and community from across Cameroon
