I am Dr. Manasi Kumar, Senior Lecturer , Department of Psychiatry , Nairobi University and I promote maternal mental health.

Adolescents are a vulnerable group and depressed and pregnant adolescents experience a number of challenges hence the need for support. Strengthening women and mothers strengthens families. It is very important to also fight for gender equity, stop violence and discrimination towards women which risk factors for maternal mental health. Young girls are often targeted similarly and in vulnerable contexts , succumb to socio-emotional pressures. This is why I empower adolescent girls and women by addressing their mental health.
