Breaking the Silence on #MentalHealth
#SocialCommentary presents: Breaking the Silence on #MentalHealth | Sharing Your Story is a Shared Victory
According to SADAG (South African Depression & Anxiety Group) Professor Lourens Schlebusch, there are 23 suicides a day in South Africa (2018). Suicide death rates are now 24 per 10 000 people with male deaths being five times higher than female deaths.
Mental Illness and Depression is a silent killer, first your voice… and then your life.
Healing comes with acknowledgement. A letter, a single word or sentence. Speaking up, sharing YOUR story can save a life. Break the silence. Sharing your story is a shared victory.
