Rise Up Together - Mental Wellbeing Initiative

One of the most devastating effects of the August 4th blast is the long-term impact of the traumatic event on our mental health. But you are not alone. We at LeMSIC have collected a database of mental health professionals aa well as speech therapists who are willing to support survivors of the August 4th disaster, free of charge.
Some of these professionals are willing to provide online sessions, others will offer face-to-face sessions. We pray that we all get better and recover fast.
