PEP x Eriwellbeing present: Let's Talk Mental Health
Date to be confirmed - postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak
We are excited to be collaborating with Eriwellbeing for our upcoming event, Let's Talk: Mental Health. The event will provide an opportunity to talk about mental health and wellbeing in the context of the Eritrean community. We hope that having more open conversations around this topic will help to break down some of the stigmas and challenges around discussing mental health with our families, friends and wider communities.
Join us for this session featuring a guest panel and opportunity for you to contribute in our Q&A, group discussions and networking session. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.
