Life After Abuse Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting men’s mental health awareness, marked Health Month with an initiative aimed at raising awareness about men’s mental health. The foundation conducted a sensitization workshop at Isolo General Hospital, targeting healthcare professionals to equip them with the necessary knowledge and tools to support men’s mental well-being.

The workshop, facilitated by LAAF Executive Director, Halima Layeni aimed to raise awareness and educate healthcare professionals about the importance of addressing men’s mental health issues.

The workshop provided valuable insights into the unique challenges faced by men in relation to mental health and explored effective strategies for addressing these issues within healthcare settings. The session emphasized the importance of destigmatizing mental health concerns among men and fostering a supportive environment for seeking help and support.

The event was hosted by Dr. Oni Adedapo Thomas, a consultant psychiatrist at Isolo General Hospital, with the esteemed presence of Mrs. Funke Olusola, the Head of Theatre Nurse, underscoring the hospital’s commitment to promoting mental health awareness and providing quality care to all patients, including men facing mental health challenges.

LAAF extends its gratitude to the volunteers who supported the workshop, including Anjolola Osinuga and Ridwan Tijani, for their selfless service and commitment.

Speaking about the initiative, Halima Layeni expressed gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with Isolo General Hospital and highlighted the importance of collective action in addressing the mental health needs of men in our communities. “By coming together to raise awareness and provide support, we can create a more compassionate and inclusive society where men feel empowered to prioritize their mental well-being,” she stated.

The sensitization workshop at Isolo General Hospital underscores Life After Abuse Foundation’s ongoing commitment to promoting men’s mental health awareness and advocacy, particularly within underserved communities. As Health Month continues, the foundation remains dedicated to driving positive change and fostering a culture of mental wellness for all men.
