Tilitonse Programme is a non-profit venture of PsycHealth Zambia, which seeks to increase demand for and access to mental health services among marginalised and vulnerable communities. Through the use of multiple communication channels, Tilitonse seeks to rigorously raise awareness on mental health, and make services readily available to those in need. Tilitonse means we are together in one of Zambia’s local languages. Join the conversation using the #Tilitonse.
