Mental health Awareness Department
Most mental illnesses emerge throughout adolescence and early adulthood. This has an impact on educational performance, professional or career prospects, and accomplishments, as well as the creation and character of personal connections. The impact lasts for the rest of a person's life. Under mental health awareness, we strive to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health in Uganda so that youth suffering from mental illnesses may receive treatment and additional assistance without fear of being misunderstood. In this there will be sessions where people are educated on mental health and the services that the organization has, free diagnosis, further assistance and guidance would be provided accordingly. In this time of digital transformation, we also use social media platforms to spread awareness. With the incredible technology that we use to ensure that we create a positive impact on people's lives. Below are some of the things we do to promote awareness on mental health
The Resilence Club
The Resilience Club is a program under Buzzcut Foundation that targets young people between the ages of 18 - 26 years and focuses on providing fun therapy through arts and recreational activities rather than just talk therapy. It also emphasizes the use of creativity and attractive ways of promoting awareness on mental health. The club hosts an event every month where both members and nonmembers are welcome to attend. Each event has a different theme that contributes to one’s resilience, mental health or way of life in one way or another. Each theme includes a variety of activities all of which are carefully organised to give a therapeutic but enjoyable experience. The activities we have usually include;
Support group therapy
A vast majority of the people in support groups are people who are going through or have gone through comparable situations. The support group allows individuals to discuss their own experiences and thoughts, coping skills, or direct knowledge. Our support groups are led by a well-trained facilitator and an assistant, with 7 to 12 people listening in and participating. Every first and last Saturday of the month at 5 p.m. EAT. The sessions take place online at via google meet and Zoom as well as in person at schools and universities and at outreach programs. To reach a large number of people, we created a WhatsApp group chat dedicated to encouraging young people to discuss their experiences, seek mental health support, and encourage one another. We have committed our support groups over the last two years to addressing general/all mental health concerns. We were able to reach as many people as possible after holding around 60 support group meetings. With support group leaders and mental health professionals working together in closed groups for about five to seven weeks. During the course of the support group sessions. Our support groups provide a variety of activities, such as educational materials, workshops, group counseling, team building exercises, and other resources, to teach youth with mental health concerns how to live with and adapt to a lifestyle that is commonly impacted by their illnesses.
