Most mental illnesses develop between adolescents and young adulthood. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 75 percent of mental health disorder begin by age 24. It is important to create safe spaces for youth where they talk about mental health, reduce stigma and seek support.

It targets community volunteers with the view to raise awareness on the mental health phenomenon and to minimize stigma associated with it and will enable participants for further application to be mental health activists.
