Millennium Fellowship Project: Zeve
This project is committed to alleviating the rapid increase of youths being lost to suicide due to mental health issues by tackling and improving the mental and psychological well being of youths and adolescents. This will be accomplished by promoting mental health awareness and wellbeing, prevention of mental health disorders, and protecting human rights and mental healthcare. This project has been motivated by personal experiences with depression and has been started in honor of Zelio Vera, a friend lost to suicide. With our combined passion in mental health, we hope to create awareness against the stigma through community discussions via social media and other means.
