Mental health is fundamental to our collective and individual ability as humans to think, emote, interact with each other, earn a living and enjoy life. It is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
The World Health Organization defines mental health as mental well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
Joining us today is MS. Serah Muindi, a licensed counseling psychologist and the founder of Hope Well Counseling Firm, which is an accredited mental health organization that provides counseling and other mental health services to community members both online and in person. We explored the state of mental health in Kenya.
