On the 25th of April Deaf Zimbabwe Trust (DZT) held its 4th Psychosocial Support Group session and free sign language workshop in 2015. Participants were drawn from various locations in Harare and a few came from Chitungwiza and Marondera. The workshop comprised of parents, teachers, friends and relatives of children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing as well as Deaf students and adults. Addiction is one of the major problems affecting today’s youths. The workshop was aimed at educating the participants on the dangers of addiction. This was based on the realisation that a number of youths are now indulging in intoxicating substances which have become readily available in the market at low costs allowing young people to access them easily. It is not only alcohol that people can get addicted to but there are various substances and behaviours that people can be addicted to without even realizing it. Paidamoyo Chimhini gave a presentation on addictions and addictive behaviours.
