Scandal! actress Nomvelo Makhanya chats to us about her upcoming mental health talk, and the inspiration behind it. The inspiration behind the mental health talk is my personal story.
I was living with a mental disorder for a long time, but was not aware of it. I would go through these emotions, and didn’t understand why until I started seeing a psychologist.
I believe that a lot of people are going through the same thing and only realise when it’s too late. This is why I decided to create this learning platform, so we can having these conversations.
We are hoping to help people understand different kinds of mental illnesses. I hope that through this platform, I can help other people to recognise the signs, and find their voice to explain to families and friends what they are going through. And, also seek the help they need.
