" Our generation and others have and are going through a lot of hurt and pain, this while thinking they are alone through it all. The Millennium Fellowship Program will help me connect to like-minded individuals thus giving me the opportunity to learn how to empower and educate people going through mental health problems. The Fellowship will help me make a social impact in schools and institutions that do not have mental wellbeing structures or programs. I am excited to be part of this program and hope to be of impact. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Mental Health Matters
Our project Mental health matters as from the name is mainly focusing on the mental health of the young generation and to help them on matters affecting their mental wellbeing and to help them to deal with depression and other life obstacles whether big or small.
