Kyambogo University Guidance and Counselling Unit intends to hold a Counselling Open Day on 19th February 2020 at Technical Teacher Education Grounds. The day will also be the climax of the International Psychology week at Kyambogo University. The theme will be Embracing Psychological Support in our Community.
The Open Day is intended to provide a platform for creating awareness to the students, staff and the community of Kyambogo University about the existence of professional counselling services, the role of the Guidance and Counselling Unit as well as the need to embrace psychological support. The choice of the theme comes as an intervention to young adults in Universities experiencing risky behaviours including sexuality issues, addictions, relationships and academic challenges.
The activities will include free professional counselling, blood donation, Hepatitis B screening, HIV/AIDS counselling and testing, aerobics, entertainment, addiction awareness and career guidance.
