Youth in Mind webinar invitation

Gabriela Pavarini, with colleagues from NCD Child and UNICEF, is organising a webinar that will bring together a group of young for a conversation on mental health and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When: 3pm – 4pm, Wednesday 11 May 2022

The conversation will explore what it is like to live with one or more NCDs during the pandemic and practical steps to protect mental health and wellbeing for all young people. It will also discuss innovative examples of peer support, where young people are meaningfully engaging with each other about promoting mental health.

The webinar will be moderated by Dina Al-Zou'bi, Advocacy and Programs Development Manager at the Royal Health Awareness Society in Jordan.
