Sam’s Story

Today I resume back my classes stronger and wiser; I never cared what people would think because my mental health is the most important thing ; even more than my grades. The WHO estimates that 1 out of 4 people will be impacted by poor mental health or mental ilness at some point in their lives. The other 3 will have a friend, colleague or family member struggling.

Mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety and substance use disorders impose an enormus global disease burden that leads to premature mortality and affects functioning and quality of life.Talking openly about your Mental health is not attention seeking!

I now go back with a clear understanding how I use my Knowledge from the University to help improve the lives of many other young people like me who dint get an opportunity to get here. You dont have to come to the University to make a change and be great —but we can create environments everywhere that fosters hope, creativity and opportunity that every young person can be and do things they value and have reason to value.

Thanks so much @Kenyatta University for such an environment that fosters innovativeness, creativity and excellence for everyone who wants to succeed and improve the community. The best University in the World and growing—-havard included 


Beauty is not who you are on the outside, it is the wisdom and time you gave away to save another struggling soul, like you. Shanon L. Adder.

    • Very inspiring story . mental health is a real big deal in today’s society. This is especially with increased pressure and competitive nature of the society due to scarcity of opportunities.
