Hello! Thank you for your interest in my page and helping support Nepali children and civilians in need of mental health interventions. I have been accepted into a one-month long study abroad course in Kathmandu, Nepal where I will be working with mid-senior level executives in UNICEF to help support Nepali citizens in dire need of mental health interventions. We will be visiting sites affected by the 2015 earthquake and conducting research and implementing appropriate interventions. As many of you may know, Nepal is a developing country and since the 2015 earthquake, which affected over 25,000 individuals and displaced more than 12,000 families, the affected areas have yet to be rebuilt- leaving many children and families still at risk. Furthermore, the effects of disaster and displacement have an extremely detrimental effect on mental health and well-being. Mental and psychosocial impacts from the disaster have yet to be tended to, even after two years. With your support, I can travel to Nepal to tend to some of the most affected and debilitated communities from the 2015 disaster, all while earning credits and experience towards my MPH program. This will provide me with invaluable experience while also helping affected individuals with psychosocial counseling, support, group activities, and overall research as to how we can fund and implement a long-lasting psychiatric program to increase mental health interventions in a developing nation. I appreciate anything that you can do for the Nepali families and all donors will be acknowledged in NYU's charitable funds' organization column. The One Health philosophy states, " A threat to mankind anywhere, is a threat to mankind everywhere." As global citizens, it is my hope that we can all come together to support and intervene in the mental health crisis in Nepal. Thank you.
