Sign Up, Show Up Policy

 

At Sista Afya we strive to make mental wellness care accessible and offer free services to fulfill that commitment to our community. We receive financial support to make this a reality and we want to engage with people who are ready and intentional about improving their mental wellness.

 

If you sign up for an event, we are asking for you to keep your commitment and attend. People who repeatedly sign up for events and do not show up to 2 or more events will not be permitted to attend Sista Afya events for 6 months. We do this to be a good steward of our resources and to make sure that our services are available to people that are ready to engage in mental wellness care.
