EDUCATE TO DEFEAT DEPRESSION (EDD).

EDD is an initiative under the LEAD Mental Health Advocacy, with the aim of educating the public with the basic concept of depression, skills and knowledge needed to protect their own mental health and that of their peers. It contains a series of programs, set up to encourage people to have open conversations when going through depressive episodes and what to do if they are experiencing any form of distress or crises.

At LEAD, we believe that there is a basic level of awareness, skills and Information that everyone needs about depression and their own mental health. By equipping people with the right tool (knowledge) through the EDD programs, they will be able to understand the concept of depression, their own mental health, give priority to it and build healthy minds.

The EDD consist of a wide range of programs which include the following;

1. Sensitization visits to Secondary school, hospital, religious organizations, prisons, among other institutions.

2. Seminars and webinar 

3. Talk shows e.t.c.

Mental Health is a huge part of our everyday lives. Hence, LEAD believes that empowering people’s mind on this subject matter will not only settle the present but it will also go a long way in creating possibilities for a healthy future.

“From my own personal experience working in the programme, it has helped me gain an understanding of everyone’s individual viewpoints, and helped me to explore new perspectives and ideas about mental health.” Peer Educator
