Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Initiate
The project “Initiate” was based on the concept of initiating conversations, our main motive was to work with people of all age groups and empower them on things they go through; focusing mainly on emotional health and mental health. This project had an educational drive of 2 weeks mainly targetting students and young adults. This covered how to deal with daily struggles that affect individual's mental health
eg: problems in school, college/organization (bullying, discrimination), relationships
(boundary-setting, communication, aggression), and mental health.
