Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Rerin
"Rerin” is a Yoruba (one of the major ethnic groups in Nigeria that inhabits south-western part of Nigeria) word meaning ‘to smile or laugh’
Project Rerin is a Millennium Fellowship project that seeks to increase more awareness of mental health to the public. Our aim is that by the end of this project, more people have a better understanding of mental illness and there is a significant reduction in the stigma attached to it. We also aim to create more awareness of the treatability of the illness.
