my mind, my funk
Sitawa is a mental health & epilepsy superhero. By telling her story through her award winning blog (http://sitawa.blogspot.com) she has helped many people learn more about mental health. She runs a mental health info and support hub called My Mind, My Funk, which is reaching out to schools and businesses across Nairobi to improve awareness and treatment of mental health. She has also set-up a free mental health helpline, with funds she received from Google in recognition of her awardwinning blog. The grant will help her continue to expand her centre, allowing her to spread her message about mental health and to help more people get the support they need.
