TRIUMPH Uganda Addresses the Stigma of Mental Health

After experiencing a mental health crisis of her own, Robinah Alambuya founded TRIUMPH Uganda to help others with psychosocial disabilities in her community. She used her platform to share her story and build hope. Founded in 2008, TRIUMPH’s mission is to “contribute to the process of enhancing recovery, building resilience, and investing in social networks for inclusion of persons with psychosocial disabilities.” Alambuya talks about meeting Disability Justice Project fellow Esther Suubi for the first time and how Suubi blossomed within TRIUMPH’s peer-support program. *Video includes audio descriptions for blind and low-vision audiences.
