• Programme was inspired by the negative psychological effects of Covid-19
Support programme Mental Health Champions recently launched its first online training aid to help bridge the gap of mental health practitioners in the country.
The function was held at Jacaranda Hotel, Westlands. Some 27 graduands were awarded with certificates of achievement in mental health and declared ready to provide preventative mental illness tools to society.
MHC founder Dr Margaret Kagwe said about six million Kenyans suffer from common mental conditions, such as stress and anxiety, depression and substance abuse.
"The negative psychological effects of Covid-19 have created a gap in coping with stress, which has inspired me to create Mental Health Champions to serve our communities,” she said.
