Annie's Story

Annie* grew up with a mother who verbally and emotionally abused her and her siblings. They moved from home to home. One of her step-fathers sexually abused Annie when she was 14. After that, Annie went to live with her aunt, dropped out of school and found a job in a factory. She started using alcohol heavily two or three nights a week and was pregnant, unplanned, at the age of 18, without a partner.

PMHP's global footprint

In 2013 we were given the opportunity to tailor trainings for new audiences in Lesotho (rural and urban adolescent HIV treatment teams) and in Malawi (local and Zimbabwean mental health teams).
