On World Mental Health Day, adolescents and youth in Uganda share how they cope and help others with mental health challenges.
On World Mental Health Day, adolescents and youth in Uganda share how they cope and help others with mental health challenges. With partners, UNICEF is supporting the mental health of adolescents and young people through the adolescent-centered life skills training programme for in-school and out-of-school adolescents based on the Adolescent Tool Kit and the U-Report mental health chatbot. Both have been critical in ensuring adolescents get the help and support that they need to support their mental well-being. The Toolkit empowers affected youths to strengthen resilience and protect their mental health in challenging circumstances. Since January 2023, 75,000 adolescents in Uganda have benefitted from adolescent-centered life-skills training and over 36,000 adolescent and young people have benefited from the UReport mental health chatbot.
