Stowelink is privileged to kick start a new project which will run in the fourth quarter in 2019 into 2020. The project dubbed COZ I’M HAPPY is a project that deals with creating of mental health awareness among youths in campus and in institutions of higher learning. The project recognizes the unique challenges these youth face in terms of mental health and yet have no one to speak to. To join us in conducting this amazing project is the partnership from the millennium fellowship and the united nations academic committee. We are already conducting the project in Nairobi county and will be having a poetry contest to add to the project as a means to get to the youth generation.
Mental health conditions are one of the major groups of non communicable diseases (NCDs) with crucial relevance in efforts to control and prevent NCDs. Mental health also has links to cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and other NCDs. By considering mental ill health and other NCDs together, we can improve the lives of people affected by NCDs worldwide, and guide advocacy at global, regional and national level for strong commitments at the September 2018 UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs.
Mental health has long been overlooked when NCDs are discussed or seen as being separate. But the synergies across all NCDs including mental health mean it makes sense for governments to address the common risk factors and systems barriers to reduce premature and preventable suffering and death. In alignment with target 3.4 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), “by 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being”, mental health must be integrated into the response to NCDs.
