Mental awareness workshops, mental health and anger management program were areas we focused on during September 2019. Children/ teenagers at the homes needed that platform where their voices were be heard. The mental awareness workshops educated children/ teenagers on habits and behaviors that increased the risk of developing or exacerbating mental illnesses, or mental health problems. These included such diverse risk factors such as recreational drug use, internet/gaming addiction, excessive spending, disordered eating and depression, frustration and stress. The intent behind this mental awareness theme was to raise awareness of the risks that these types of behaviors presented—especially to young people—to help individuals detect these early warning signs, and to provide resources for prevention and early intervention.
