We are fearlessly speaking truth to stigma.
At She Writes Woman, we believe that those who have experienced mental illness and other mental health and related life issues are the single most powerful instruments of change. So we are inspiring a generation of people who speak and change the misinformed narrative by giving mental health a voice in Nigeria. We are creating communities that draw strength, hope and healing from within and we are creating sustainable mental health solutions.
In July 2016, we initiated the first privately held mental health helpline that has till date received over 600 calls. It’s not always easy to ask for help and in a world filled with stigma and not enough empathy; we understand that your immediate family and friends may not be your first point of contact, so we’re here to help. Dial to speak to our trained listeners.
This social media movement has taken a life of its own outside of social media. To be unveiled in 2019, #GenerationSafe is a movement to create a safer world for all. Mental illness is too costly a burden to bear, so we are focused on preventative wellness in schools and workplaces. What would become of our world when children are taught mindfulness, empathy, anger management, sexual health, emotional first aid and more? How can we create mentally healthy workplaces to enable employees truly flourish?
