Because this affects all of us, our goal is to equip everyone in South Africa with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health.

We are giving people the confidence to support those around them, and making ANXIETY, DEPRESSION and SUICIDE part of everyday conversations.

We aim to tackle the stigma, prejudice and discrimination towards those who suffer some type of mental illness and be an advocate for those dealing with these debilitating issues.

We aim to breaking down ALL barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out!

WE ARE HERE FOR EVERYONE IN SOUTH AFRICA – at WORK, HOME, SCHOOL, UNIVERSITY, ONLINE and in Communities across the Country.
