Mental Health on Air Documentary Launch
Sun, Oct 25, 6:30 PM @ Kailash Mital Theatre, Carleton
Depression and mental illness affect youth regardless of where they live. Youth mental health is an issue often left undiscussed -- in Canada and in developing countries like Malawi and Tanzania, where malaria and malnutrition are often treated as more pressing public health concerns.
Two radio shows, along with school-based listening clubs, are helping to foster the next generation of leaders of Malawi and Tanzania by starting a discussion on the difficult topic of depression and mental health. Join Farm Radio International and TeenMentalHealth.Org at the launch of this insightful documentary.
