Please see information below from Sitawa Wafula, Kenyan based mental health advocate — website www.mymindmyfunk. Thank you Sitawa for sending us this information to share!
My name is Sitawa Wafula, I am a Kenyan based mental health advocate. My work is born from my personal experience as a rape survivor living with a dual diagnosis of epilepsy and bipolar. I do a lot of awareness and advocacy around mental health and self care including self advocacy, media, national and international engagement.
?I am involved in content creation and mental health awareness tours. My last one was in Nigeria, visiting 6 states, read about it on the Nigerian Guardian ?https://t.guardian.ng/news/jci-others-partner-with-mental-health-expert-on-sdgs/ and it was interesting to learn and connect with people doing mental health work in Nigeria and those interested in the field.
