The Mental Health Fair
The Mental Health Fair is a 1-day program of SOSWIN FOUNDATION. A bi-annual event that will take place across all the Geopolitical zones in Nigeria. Specifically, in the month of February and October.
SOSWIN FOUNDATION’s primary objective is to conduct Mental Health sensitization and youth empowerment in various states in Nigeria with the aim to sensitize students on not only the symptoms of the mental health disorders that are prevalent among youths but the underlying factors that causes mental health illnesses such as unemployment, poor economic standard of living, socio-political complexities, parental pressures, shaming, bullying, social media vices, sexual orientation, family history, physical abuse, sexual abuse, insecurity, academic/career interest, alcohol/drug use and many more.
The mental health fair will take place across all geopolitical zones.
Why Borderline Personality disorder ?
Borderline Personality Disorder is mental condition characterised by unstable moods, behaviour and relationships.
A mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.
20% of suicide cases in the world is as a result of BPD and Depression. This is a pointer that intervention programs like “THE MENTAL HEALTH FAIR” needs to be done frequently in Nigeria.
SOSWIN wants to close the technology gap and empower thousands of women and girls and also improve access to and control of technology, especially in remote and marginalized areas thereby leading to an increase in women’s economic participation, not merely to earn a living but also an opportunity to challenge many gender stereotypes and discrimination, strive for an equitable society and improved voice and participation of women in political, social and economic spheres in Nigeria and the world.
We have empowered young girls and women with digital skills that have boosted their businesses and have created enormous job opportunities.
Project FEED The Boy Child
A project that seeks to promote peace building, end all forms of hunger and malnutrition, eradicate suicide, eductate teenagers and prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
The Project Feed the Boy Child held on the 24th May, 2020 at Oshodi Police station, Oshodi Lagos. The Project Feed the Boy Child was a one-day intensive project that captured hand washing exercise, counselling and distribution of relief materials for boys between ages 10 and 19 respectively.
It was a covid-19 relief project that hosted 107 boys for one day where they were introduced to the hand washing safety measures, educated about Corona Virus, counselled on the right attitude to living and given raw food items to sustain each boy for a maximum of 3 days.
The BPD LEAD Health Project
The BPD LeadHealth Project is specially for employees and employers of Labor. Employees are the life wire of any business establishment, therefore much emphasis should be placed on capacity development and emotional state of mind. When BPD traits are mismanaged, the impulsive behavior, intense emotions and contrariness can lead to disaffection amongst coworkers. However, a healthy working environment can provide stability in the lives of people with the disorder. For others, a workplace can trigger stresses that inflame the symptoms of BPD. That is why the LeadHealth project is designed to suit each employee, addressing in-depth issues and providing solutions with work therapy.
A 2-days training of employees in different sectors of the economy with the aim to maintain work and life balance, undergo group therapy counselling, create recovery chain and provide feedback mechanisms.
A very structured training with psychotherapist and leadership coaches as facilitators.
