Awareness on Mental Health

01 Awareness on Mental Health

Mental health, globally, has been on a silent rise. Without its visible signs, it has long been a neglected aspect of overall health & wellbeing. Today the mental health burden has evolved into a public health crisis. moreso, following the recent wave of the global COVID19 pandemic. At DLC, we value that sound mental health is a key facet towards overall individual function. Uncloaking the stigma that surrounds mental health, especially within workforce spaces is an essential feature required for increase in both healthy working ecosystems and productivity levels.

Cancer Awareness and Prevention

02 Cancer Awareness and Prevention

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Costing us about 10 million lives in 2020 alone. There are a few forms of cancer, if detected early can significantly reduce this number of lives that we lose yearly. Awareness of common cancers within societies can encourage early screening, lifestyle modifications and well as initiate management for cancers early. The DLC Social Impact Community realizes that cancer is debilitating on more than an individual level. Facilitating knowledge and as well as amplifying screening to see change within these dire statistics is an outcome we look forward to achieve.

Facilitate de-addiction and rehabilitation

03 Facilitate de-addiction and rehabilitation

Drug or substance abuse is a social problem, that has destroyed several communities and families. While it can be unseen for many of us, it directly impacts how the population functions. Substance abuse impacts employment, family ties and crime rate within communities. The Social Impact Community at DLC aims to work within communities to create awareness on the types of substances and their impact within society. Unraveling the path to recovery might seem difficult, but rehabilitation provides a second chance at a life that once lost its purpose.

Women's Health

04 Women's Health

A lot of what we know concerning women's health has long been clouded with stigma and vague understanding on how a woman's body functions. Women themselves are vastly unaware of how conditions that affect their general health & wellbeing might require additional attention. From pregnancy to postpartum, concerns of menstrual health to breast cancer, women's health requires unique resources tailored focused on tackling only women's health concerns. DLC's social impact community looks forward to building a comprehensive ecosystem which women can tap into for healthcare access and services. Creating awareness is just the first step to reducing the significant toll healthcare concerns affecting women is currently taking.

Several factors can work as a hindrance towards cultivating the ability to learn. Physical disability, challenges during birth, trauma and even social constructs can contribute towards a learning disability. We aim to enable the causes for those who face challenges in learning, a basic right for every individual. Changemakers within the education, rehabilitation and healthcare sectors look forward to putting forward actionable resources that reduce the challenges they face.

Despite some progress in some countries, people with mental health conditions experience severe human rights violations, discrimination and stigma. In fact, suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds around the world. Let’s fight for better mental health for all. #DLCSocialImpact
