About Our Organisation
Lighthouse NGO Support Group is an organization aimed at restoring the hope of people who are affected, both directly and indirectly, by mental issues associated with depression and anxiety.
In addition to support for those affected, we wish to stand in love and light with all who share the vision of a healthier mental state throughout all life’s circumstances by raising awareness and effectively reducing the presence of ignorance around matters of mental health.
The founder of the organization, was inspired by her personal journey and positive recovery, as far as mental illness is concerned, to create an open and easily accessible platform that will support those affected by mental issues.
At Lighthouse we dedicate our spirit of servitude to redeeming lives that have been compromised by challenges that come with mental illness.
We intend to transform families, communities and society at large by
changing one life at a time.
To work together with everyone in stabilizing mental health as we continue tirelessly in the service of spreading love and hope to those struggling with depression and anxiety.
At Lighthouse Support Group we realize that the first step to harmonious mental health is an acknowledgement. This is why our organization aims to help individuals accept and embrace the presence of unfavourable mental conditions such as depression without judgement and undermining the reality thereof.
We humbly commit ourselves to be the friend, the mentor and the uncompromised support system you can always turn to.
To redeem, restore and develop mental health throughout society especially among young people and to also raise mental health awareness by use of effective and impactful initiatives.
