Mental Health Awareness Day at Fort Napier

October is Mental Health Awareness Month, so in line with this a team of staff from Fort Napier Hospital set up an information table at Midlands Liberty Mall on Sat 11 October.
While preparing for this promotion the members of this team were a little apprehensive about what kind of interest (if any) would be shown by the public because of the stigma’s surrounding Mental Health.
Well, we need not have worried. We had a most amazing amount of interest shown at our table with a very varied number of questions asked of the team manning the table. We were well prepared with a number of information leaflets and contact numbers which we could hand out.
Thank you to all the Fort Napier Hospital staff who visited us at the Mall. We were even fortunate enough to have a visit from Mrs Lungi Mkhize who came up all the way from Durban to support us.
We all felt that this is something we would like to do again, to help build awareness of Mental Illness.
