Counselling remains EWRF’s core supporting activity. In 2018, 93 students were given counselling help, emphasise on support to ensure that the emotional and behavioural challenges of students are addressed.
Appropriate psychosocial support helps children and their families to overcome challenges like psychosocial well-being, including poverty, conflict, neglect, abuse and chronic illness.
EWRF worked closely with well-trained and certified counsellors to provide counselling services to the students in need of this service.
It is also noted that this support goes beyond the students, parents on many occasions have sought help from EWRF to assist them in managing their children.
Students are often faced with emotional and psychosocial distress. It is imperative that professional counselling is given to high-risk students who suffer from depression and other emotional problems.
