On Mental Health Awareness Month, AIESEC in Patan organizes “Mental Health Matters” as the first initiative toward Mental health and making youths aware of their well-being, care, understanding, compassion and health.
The Event aims to promote SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being) to ensure an easier, accessible and safe healthy well-being.
As the world’s largest youth-led organization, AIESEC has been present in more than 110 countries and territories, with a vision of achieving “Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential.” We aim to engage each youth in this world through cross-cultural exchanges in the countries where we are present.
Our exchanges and engagement activities call attention to the youth’s role and engagement in global action. We do this by aligning our exchange projects and events with Sustainable Development Goals.
Throughout the event “Mental Health Matters,” a strategic marketing campaign for this awareness month would run for a strategic 15 days before the main event. Social users and audiences were made to share their feelings and emotions by using comfortable questions on social media and awarding people about various mental health issues and wellnesses.
Important dates for this Event are coming soon, so come let’s together to celebrate the ongoing effort to reduce the stigma around mental illness and mental health conditions by sharing our personal experiences.
