Parents, guardians play a crucial role in promoting children's mental health


An intern social worker in the Ministry of Gender Equality, Poverty Eradication, and Social Welfare says parents and guardians have a huge role to play in supporting their children's ability to work through mental health and nurturing their positive wellbeing.

Vanessa Gertze Shivute said this at the Mental Health Awareness Day held at Origo Primary School in Rehoboth on Tuesday. Mentally healthy children have a positive quality of life and can function well at home, in school, and in their communities.
