Sima Health Consultancy provides youth mental health literacy.
This is an educational program focused on the wellness, prevention, pre-disease level. We convey information on youth mental disorders, other mental health issues, mental illness mitigation, health maintenance, improved access to mental health care services and early treatment. We provide educational programs and help improve access to mental health services to youth in urban and underserved remote communities.
