We develop and disseminate evidence-based interventions for young people in Sub-Saharan Africa. Youths thrive by improving their mental health, academic grades, and social relationships.
Our Thrive! Fellows are the foundation of our work. They deliver Project Thrive! to young people in school-settings.
Thrive! Supervisors support the work of the Thrive! Fellows and provide extra mental health support. A second-line of support, they triage young people to expert mental healthcare.
The Thrive! Network is our network of mental health experts with deep contextual and cultural expertise.They act as our bridge with the healthcare system.
Rather than target psychopathology, our intervention in Project Thrive! is a character strengths building intervention. Youths are taught about growth, gratitude, and value affirmations, and learn important problem-solving skills to help them navigate future difficulties. In this way, Project Thrive! helps at-risk youths in places without formal mental healthcare build the skills they need to navigate life's difficulties.
