Breaking the stigma begins with our commitment to educating ourselves about mental health and openly sharing our personal struggles. By fostering understanding and sharing our experiences, we contribute to dismantling misconceptions surrounding mental health.
Campaigning Against Mental Health Stigma & Discrimination
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities emphasizes that discrimination against people based on physical or mental disabilities is a violation of their basic human rights.
At Twogere, we challenge mental health stigma and discrimination through contact education. The contact-based education involves learning about mental illness from people with first-hand experience who share their stories openly and without shame to change perceptions, advocate for better treatment and care, and provide encouragement and support to others.
