Mental Health Advocacy and Trauma Healing

I AM Mbare initially partnered with Aqua Healing, an organization that provides trauma counseling, to provide trauma healing workshops to youth in the community. Group counselling sessions encouraged participants to share stories about the trauma they had experienced with the intent of restoration of heart and mind, and the realization of the harmful impact of any negative activities that had both been victims on, and that they had inflicted upon others. I AM Zimbabwe teams have continued this work, providing free individual and group counseling sessions to community members who seek assistance for traumatic experiences.

Sexual Reproductive Health Workshops

These workshops are conducted by trained members of the I AM Zimbabwe communities as a means to educate the youth and young adults around topics such as human rights and sexual reproductive rights, sexually transmitted illnesses, HIV/AIDS and gender and social norms.
