ABOUT THE PROGRAM

PSD is collaborating with Sangath, an organization committed to improving mental health through comprehensive interventions, to research and implement the use of sports-based initiatives in preventing substance abuse in youth.

In August 2021, the two organizations conducted a joint two-day workshop on devising sports-based interventions for the MeWeSports project.

PSD is working with Sangath to undertake the following initiatives:

  • Conduct a series of workshops focused on sports-based interventions for the prevention of substance abuse.

  • Set up a sport-for-development expert advisory group to provide feedback and support in manual writing.

  • Co-produce and disseminate materials to promote organizational insights on sport-for-development, mental health and substance abuse through organizational websites, social media and other platforms.

  • Share knowledge, resources and outputs from the various activities to aid in the development of the sports-based intervention.
