Who we Are?
We started as a mental health support group for university students in 2012, and our inception was inspired by the need to promote unashamed conversations about health problems. The issue is that many Ugandans still don’t consider mental health relevant to them. They don’t believe mental health problems can affect them or people they know, but the reality is that mental health problems can affect anyone.
Evolving from a Support Group, Twogere officially registered as a Community-Based Organization in 2017, and in 2023 it transitioned into a fully registered Non-Governmental Organization.
We continue to expand our impact by working with different stakeholders to deliver culturally appropriate community-led interventions aimed at challenging mental health stigma and discrimination across contexts.
