Mental health services to save lives
I can face the future again!
R350 will sponsor a counselling session for someone in despair and at risk
Someone dies by suicide every 40 seconds because they have not received the mental health support they need. Donate R350 to provide a counselling session and ongoing support by an experienced mental health professional to save the life of someone struggling to cope with depression, anxiety or other mental disorders.
“I felt that my life had no purpose and no meaning and that everyone would be better off without me. Without the support I received, I would not be here today and ready to face the future.”
Did you know that 75% of South Africans can’t access mental health services
when they need them most? Without the necessary mental health support
a valuable life is lost every 40 seconds.
We see the consequences of inadequate mental health care in our schools, in the workplace, in primary health care services and state institutions. The impact of depression and other mental health disorders is evident in all sectors of society, but especially in vulnerable groups such as children and youth.
Accidental death and homicide is the leading cause of death of youth aged 15 to 29, but suicide is the second leading cause of death of South African youth.
Suicide is 100% preventable!
The best investments you will ever make is to safeguard your own mental health and help restore the mental health of a vulnerable person.
