Coalition for Action for Preventive Mental Health Kenya. We are made up of a wide variety of community groups and non-governmental organizations who are keen to see more investment and opportunities for community-based prevention initiatives. We believe by investing in grassroots community prevention and awareness initiatives, Kenya can employ an approach that builds on Indigenous cultural resources and innovative models developed via the diverse experiences of our communities. We believe an approach developed in this manner — from the community level up — will be uniquely suited to alleviate the burden of mental health conditions and challenges.
