REACH-MH Project seeking Students to Research in Kenya

REACH-MH Project (Reaching, Engaging Adolescents and Young Adults for Care Continuum in Health) aims to identify mental health protective and risk factors among adolescents and young people using an established mobile app called REACH. Gathering data on mental health in Africa is often challenging due to stigma, but young people are more likely to provide candid answers through a smartphone than face-to-face interactions. This project is supported by the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s (UMB) President’s Global Impact Fund.
