On 27th April, 2019 Mwangaza Trust held a stress management workshop as a part of its mentorship and leadership development programs at Kingdom Gardens, Muthaiga. Stress management has become a prevalent societal issue, which has affected many youth in Kenya today. Some of the sources of stress for youths today include; family issues, educational aspirations, relationships, health, finances among others.

Charity Njuguna, a law student at Kenyatta University shared with attendees her life testimony on her experience with stress and how she eventually overcame. From her experience, stress affected her relationship with family, effectiveness in service at church as well as her academic performance and self-esteem.

Like many other issues in life, stress is an integral part of our day-to-day lives. When managed well, stress can be a motivator and source of self-drive to achieve better in life. However, when poorly managed, it can lead to depression, anxiety, and suicide.

Ms. Njuguna encouraged youths to identify what they could do differently to avoid future recurrence of stress, and have accountability programs as well as control groups within which they can be able to manage stress.

The aim of this workshop and many others like this is not only to bring awareness but also to create a platform for youths to be able to address issues that affect them.
