Schizophrenia Society Of Kenya (SSK)
Elimisha Jamii Campaign- Schizophrenia Society of Kenya is currently working in 6 primary school to undertake mentoring and destigmatization on mental health issues.
Siaya Country (in Kenya) schools had 5 suicides since 2015. There are other mental health issues like depression and anxiety that is eating into the student population and
so SSK has risen to the occasion to remedy this through education on matters mental health. Elimisha Jamii Campaign is a Swahili word meaning educate the society. SSK iscollaboration with other stakeholders in the effort of educating the public especially the youth on matters related to mental health. We plan to use the laptops for teaching
the youths in the schools. We hope to store our education materials in the computers since this will make us environmentally friendly by reducing amount of paper used for
teaching materials. We also want to teach the students on how to use the computers to carry out research online on mental health issues. Finally, the students will use the
computers directly to train on our courses offered by SSK.
