" I feel joyous to be part of the Millennium Fellowship class of 2020. This is a great opportunity to connect with other great Millennium Fellows from other campus and communities and take my social impact to the next level. I am passionate about reaching out to people, and this is an opportunity to create awareness about depression and mitigate suicide. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: LEAD (Living Everyday Above Depression) Project
LEAD is an acronym for Living Everyday Above Depression. A campaign against depression. Among all mental illness, depression happens to be the most alarming one. The world statistics shows that depression is the third leading cause of global death. Lead Project is a non governmental organisation with a team of vibrant young people and professionals determined to create awareness about depression among young people in Nigeria. We also help depressed patients by bridging the gap between them and mental health care.
My personal social impact project is aimed at creating awareness about Male depression. A lot of men suffer from depression and the society make it difficult for them to speak out. This will be accomplished through a social media campaign reaching out to 200-500 persons . Additionally, I plan to host a WhatsApp webinar to reach out to 200 persons and more.
