Did you know that adolescents account for a staggering 13% of the global burden of mental disorders? Many of these challenges begin in adolescence, emphasizing the critical need for prevention, early detection, and intervention.

WHY IT MATTERS: The teenage years are a crucial time when mental health problems are more likely to emerge. To address this, it’s essential to prevent and detect these challenges early on.

Adolescents’ well-being is the foundation for a healthier adulthood. Schools play an important role in promoting mental health and well-being. Early identification and preventive measures are essential.

That’s why SENSE is on a mission to provide in-service training for secondary school teachers. We want to equip teachers with the knowledge, resources, and skills they need to promote, prevent, and intervene early in students’ mental health.
