Promoting access to right information for awareness on health issues mainly focusing on mental health support,
counselling, and sexual and reproductive health
YSMF believe that all young people under 18 years should enjoy the full range of human rights, including Sexual and Reproductive Health rights that is why we encourage, we create awareness and advocating for the emotional and mental health of teen and young mothers and their children. Being a mother below the age of 18 comes with many challenges associated with a range of adverse outcomes for young mothers, including mental health problems such as depression, substance abuse, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Raising a child at a young age destroys the teen and young mothers emotionally which lead to physical harm and endless trauma to them and their children as well.
