Nurses in Kenya are under unprecedented strainworking long hours with low wages and dealing with challenges due to covid-19 and emotional exhaustion. Their prolonged occupational stress is leading to increased mental health challenges such as anxiety, depressions and burn-out. To address this, Inuka is working to provide coaching to 4000 nurses. We use a peer-to-peer approach, which means that we are training nurses to provide Inuka coaching to other nurses.
Next to our conventional one-on-one coaching, this project also includes something new: group-based problem solving coaching. The project started with focus groups with nurses, to get their feedback and co-create the project with them, to ensure the solution fits with their needs.
