AFP’s Initiative to Raise Awareness Surrounding Mental Health and Wellness
AFP recognizes the importance of self-care and mental health and how they impact our careers, relationships with ourselves and others, and our everyday lives.
One in four people around the world will be affected by mental disorders, and roughly 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions—including those in the charitable sector.
We’re committed to ending the stigma surrounding mental health. That’s why we’re launching AFP Supports. Our goal is to raise awareness and provide you with the resources needed to learn about and address a critical subject that impacts so many.
There are many issues related to mental health and self-care, and we are just getting started with AFP Supports.
