Duration: 1 hour
Teaching you the tools on how to build self-awareness, self-confidence and self-reliance. We make use of an approach called psychological first aid, which is an evidence-informed modular approach to help individuals in the immediate aftermath of disaster. This approach is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events and to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning and coping.
The tools learnt in this process allows individuals to not only make themselves more resilient, but to also share these with their immediate circle, that is, friends, family and wider community.
One in four people globally are suffering from a mental illness, in South Africa this stat is one in three people. The greatest challenge is not treating this as normal chronic illness creating a massive stigma, causing people to suffer in silence with exceptionally high suicide substance abuse rates.
