" The world needs more people who are willing to take an inclusive method of change. Change that would truly make a positive impact and bridge the moral and emotional gaps that hinder progress and I am such a person. I believe that being a Millennium Fellow would give me the platform I need to gain the adequate skill set to impact meaningful change and contribute my quota to world peace and development. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Live Another Day
Live Another Day is a project aimed at curbing the increasing rate of suicide and depression amongst students. It employs the aid of social media and the internet which is fast growing and evolving amongst students.
It was held amongst students in the faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University.
One sees and hears about different things happening on social media and it seems the youth bears the brunt of it. Students are the leaders of tomorrow and in order to cater for a better tomorrow, we all need to be healthy and sound psychologically.
Live Another Day employs platforms such as WhatsApp and Google Forms in order to disseminate properly the idea of the project. Students were sensitized on WhatsApp on the importance of a sound mental health and were given an opportunity to share their burdens anonymously or non-anonymously through Google forms and were also given an opportunity for their problems to be addressed by a professional if they wished.
The result of the project showed fair reception and interest as some students still found it a bit difficult to share their problem and preferred to remain anonymous.
The project is till currently on going as more publicity is being made and also more sensitization on the benefits are buttressed across the faculty.
