with mental health problems. Furthermore,

people's mental health issues that anyone, including parents, children, young people,
or even members of the media, can access for free. We will also be distributing
thought leadership articles from the IACAPAP every quarter on pertinent public

lives. Knowledge changes perception and shape's opinion." Said Ms. Jennifer

our vision aligns with that of IACAPAP's. We are very certain that this
