Mental Health Awareness Month is observed in October in South Africa. Every year I come up with content and it just never seems to make it to the publish stage. It’s difficult for me to talk about mental health especially MY mental health without mentioning my former toxic workplace. I am hoping that this year will be different. I’ve planned a variety of blog posts looking into how you can take better care of your mental health. These are just things that worked for me- I am not a healthcare professional or a mental health professional. However if you need someone to talk to, you can contact the Mental health awareness helpline at 0800 567 567 or the South African depression and anxiety group at 0800 121 314.
