Millennium Fellowship Project: Steadfast on Longevity
Steadfast on Longevity (SOL) is a student-led virtual health & wellness programme that aspires students to fully optimise every area of their wellbeing. The goal of the programme is to educate and promote health sustainability amongst students in the University of the Western Cape. SOL runs primarily on social media whereby a series of quick and easy-to-understand content about mental health will be shared. SOL will be assisting students on how they can be more aware of mental health issues and also advise them on how they can cope with many common mental health issues faced by students.
