Shamiri Institute

Il Shamiri Institute lavora per rendere la salute mentale accessibile a tutti, costruendo cosi un futuro in cui i giovani di tutto il mondo possano realizzare il loro potenziale di vita.

The Shamiri Institute aims to develop and implement solutions using the arts, with scalable practices that enable young people to be well and realise their potential in life. Rigorous social science research is combined with a deep contextual understanding of the educational and mental health care systems of the communities in which we work to develop and deploy at scale effective, holistic interventions that enable youth and communities to thrive. Our mission is to develop and disseminate research and tools based on methodological rigour and data to improve the mental health of young people in Africa and other countries.
