As we end off another World Mental Health Month, we want to remind you that stigma is still a huge issue when it comes to mental health and it plays a significant role in preventing people from seeking the help that they need.
We are so thankful to the team at Masiviwe for collaborating with to create this wonderful short film about stigma told through the lives of persons with lived experience of mental health conditions. In order to realise mental health as a human right, we need to end the #stigma that surrounds #mentalhealth.
We also want to say thank you to our community-based partners at Central Gauteng Mental Health Society and all the persons with lived experience who shared their stories with us.
You can watch the film below.
