October 2021 Newsletter

World Mental Health Day was this month and in support of this important topic, the ICHAD and SMART Africa teams continue to push for evidence-based mental health programming. Our Researcher Resiliency Team (RRT) including Directors Mary McKay, Fred Ssewamala, and Sean Joe, as well as RRT Alumni Leslie Adams and Proscovia Nabunya, presented to the National Institute of Mental Health’s Global Mental Health Team about how the RRT training program helped build resilience in part due to supportive teams to help trainees succeed as researchers of color representing both the global north and global south.

You can also learn more about the important research the ICHAD team is conducting to address stigma amongst youth living with HIV through our Suubi4Stigma study below.
