Emmanuel Presby Mental Health Workshop
Six mental health advocates held a program at the presbyterian church of Ghana, Emmanuel congregation, Dansoman on the 29th of August, 2021. The program was dubbed ‘demystifying the norm’. This program was to educate the youth on mental health and the reality of living with these conditions and the strategies for attaining a sound state of mental health and wellness. The teenagers together with their Sunday school teachers were very receptive and paid rapt attention throughout the session. Some limitations imposed on the program were the cost of transportation and the inability to project some pictures and videos for the teenagers to see and know how the mental conditions are in society. At the end of it all, the advocacy project was a huge success as we were able to meet our goal for the day which was basically to get people to understand what mental health is about and its importance.
