What We Do

We are an African Research Institution that enhances evidence-based practice in Health and social care for adolescents and youths.

Using the Mats Dialogue Model, we build the capacity of community leaders and artists to intervene in eco-sexual and mental health issues in their contexts. 

 

We collaborate with local and international institutions to address issues emerging from research that are some of the drivers of sexual and mental health challenges i.e. food, water, and  sanitation

 

Our Goal

Achieve and sustain a reduction in the number of eco-social and psycho-social related challenges that lead to poor mental health outcome among adolescents and youth Africa.
