Why we exist: to help you emotionally
Our story: Coming from west Africa my family and I never understood the importance of mental health.
When my sister was 10 year she became a victim of a mental health disorder. She’d starve herself, isolate herself, and turn to self harm, as methods to cope. It was traumatizing and my family didn’t know how to help her or let alone understand what she was going through.
Luckily a therapist was able to shed light on her mental health disorders and help her from causing more harm to herself.
This is why I’m so passionate about this topic. Imagine if there was a way to help the other 7.7 million youth suffering from a mental health disorder before it led to something as damaging as suicide?
