Break the barrier

This program aims to identify issues, raise awareness, and start a conversation within the community and the policymakers regarding the mental health issues among young people from multicultural communities so the intergenerational gap can be minimized. This project intends to bring the issue to the forefront of both Government as well as community discussions through a series of discussions, in-depth interviews, and more activities will be conducted within the community members.
