Scholar Fatmata Jaria Bah, a 100-level Mass Communication Student of Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone, discussed 'Depression: Suicide Not an Option' with 100 SS3 students of Model Senior Secondary School, Freetown, Sierra Leone, in partial fulfilment of the requirements to graduate from ISERH Undergraduate Studies Class 5.

Knowing the shock and depression that students experience whenever the results of their Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) get released, Scholar Fatmata saw the need to take this topic to them. She discussed: factors responsible for suicide, common methods of committing suicide, signs to identify someone with suicidal thoughts, seeking supports for depressed persons and people with suicidal thoughts, etc.

Having successfully implemented this project, she has hereby fulfilled a part of the requirements expected of her to graduate and get inducted as an ISERH Associate Ambassador, and if all things being equal, she shall have unrestricted access to the resources available on the Ambassadors Portal - starting from Sunday 29th of November, 2020, immediately after their convocation and induction ceremony on the class platform.

ISERH Undergraduate Studies is a FREE online course where African undergraduates and fresh graduates are trained (via whatsapp class) by professionals, for a period of 5 months (minimum) on leadership, socio-economic, relationship and entrepreneurial skills. The students of the course are referred to as SCHOLARS, and upon the fulfilment of 75% attendance rate, 50% facebook engagement rate, filling of online graduation form, and implementation and reporting of capstone project, they get convocated and inducted as ISERH Associate Ambassadors. This gives them unrestricted access to ISERH Ambassadors Portal ( where they can freely have one-on-one chats with a group or individual Ambassadors and their facilitators, have access to internship, fellowship, jobs adverts; audio/video lectures; books; and lots more.

From all of us at the Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health (ISERH), we say 'Congratulations to her' and as well give credit to Dr. Agberotimi Femi, for facilitating the training of our scholars on ‘Depression: Suicide Not An Option’ .
