Anxiety Reduction Programme (4STMF four steps to my future)

According to the World Health Organisation, one in three South Africans will suffer a mental health episode in their lives. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues.

Community Keepers has partnered with the Universities of Stellenbosch and Bath (United Kingdom) on a joint research programme into the effectivity of a group-based programme for the reduction of generalised anxiety.

The pilot is conducted over 2 years and initial indications of a successful implementation are very positive.   If successful, the programme will be implemented in all the Primary Schools partnering with Community Keepers.
