Stowelink was invited as a key stakeholder to the Young Health Programme Kenya by Astra Zeneca as key stakeholders to the dissemination of the mental health research on young people. The forum was attended by plenty of young people who played a key role in driving the agenda of the day. As part of deliberations of this event the key findings from the mental health research were shared and discussed with stakeholders present amongst them being the Ministry Of Health, other civil society organizations and other key players.
Stowelink also made a presentation during this engagement highlighting the need for a robust mental health strategy. We also shared our toolkits and guidelines that were developed in the mental health space as a key tool to help move the needle forward.
