Our Impact

In Sub Saharan Africa where half the population is 19 or younger, the potential for impact  of our youth-based mental healthcare model is immense

1,600+

adolescents across Kenya have received our intervention and 4,500+ have participated in our screenings

1,400+

intervention sessions conducted by our Thrive Fellows in more than 10 secondary schools across Kenya

40%

reduction in depression and anxiety symptoms reported by youths plus 14% improvement in peer relations & 3% improvement in grades

MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS ARE COMMON. MENTAL HEALTHCARE IS NOT.

But we have developed, and are disseminating, accessible, acceptable, and evidence-based interventions for young people.

Our rigorously-tested and evidence-based intervention— Project Thrive! — includes simple psychological elements that are stigma-free, culturally appropriate, and positively focused. Delivered by young people for young people, our mental healthcare model is overcoming the existing barriers to mental healthcare.
