A Message from Keith Anderson, the founder of Worth Living

I want to welcome you to Work Living Mental Health, a global mental health awareness initiative.

As a lawyer who had depression, I know personally the devastating impact that mental illness can have on one’s life.

Our goal is to educate people on mental health and to engage people in the greater conversation on mental health awareness. WL offers Seminars, Keynote Speakers, a Blog, Music, Podcasts, and more. The website lists activities and initiatives in which you can get involved.

I had the occasion to meet Shahinaz Abdel Monim Abdel Ghany online more than a year ago. She has been very supportive of the work of Worth Living. She has been an active and important WL Ambassador sharing, commenting, and liking WL posts online.

WL launched Chapters in Canada, the USA, and the UK. Shahinaz and I then discussed the idea of launching a WL Egypt Chapter with her as the Lead. She thought the idea was wonderful and was very interested in this role. She has done an incredible job and accomplished huge steps in a short time. On her invitation, several people have joined WL Chapter as WL Ambassadors. She has some WL Apparel and Leather Products available.

There is a great need for people to talk about mental health in Cairo. WL Egypt is greatly needed to raise awareness of mental health challenges that so many people experience in silence and alone. Sh and several other people in Cairo now form the WL Egypt Chapter.

I would ask you to support Shahinaz and WL Egypt in any way you can. Help us help others. Thank you.
