Countries Implemented In
We will train teachers, youth leaders, and clinic staff on how to identify and treat depression, so that care is available.
How does your innovation work?
Through this project, young people in Malawi and Zambia will learn what depression is and gain a better understanding of mental health issues and how these issues can affect their lives and communities. As young people understand more about depression, and their attitudes to it change, they may recognize it in their community, or in themselves.
Planned Goals and Milestones
Using an integrated approach, in schools, radio programs, youth clubs and primary care clinics, our long term aim is to increase awareness of Depression and take steps to ensuring that anyone who recognizes they need care, can identify where they can get it, and receive a measure of appropriate care.
