How resilience empowers the youth of the future

Panelists discussed how resilience is the often overlooked, yet vital ingredient needed to support the mental, emotional and physical well-being of adolescent youth.

Moderated by former BBC News and Current Affairs journalist, Laura Hearn, mental health experts and global participants included:

  • Rosemary Gathara | Executive Director, Basic Needs Kenya
  • Chris Underhill | Senior Ashoka Fellow + Global Mental Health Social Entrepreneur
  • Nandita Bhatla | Program Director, WorldBeing India
  • Steve Leventhal | CEO, WorldBeing
  • Laura Hearn | Moderator + Former BBC News Journalist

Attendees had the opportunity to hear from many voices about the impact that WorldBeing’s global work is having on the lives of those being served including students, teachers, and field staff.

To date, WorldBeing’s measurable impact has empowered nearly 200,000 youth in countries that include:

  • | India
  • | Kenya

The result is participants in these life-changing programs can now advocate for their health and education rights, improve their mental and physical wellbeing, and attain their educational goals.
