The importance of mental health cannot be overemphasised in these times. As per the World Mental Health Report 2022, “Today we are living through a global mental health crisis. Nearly a billion people around the world, millions of children and young people, have a mental health condition.”
The Art of Living has done exceptional work in promoting well-being – and being a part of this growing community, is a great way to equip oneself with the tools and techniques to live a happy life.
The Art of Living seeks to establish its presence in Ghana through its various programs in schools, colleges, corporates and institutions.
It aims to open Happiness Centres across Ghana where people will find food for their soul.
The Art of Living Ghana also plans to start free courses in Kumasi as well as a free prison smart program soon.
