The South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag) is putting forward the importance of psychological first aid on World Mental Health Day.
As we continue on our journey and mission of education and awareness around mental health, people that are often closely affected are loved ones, friends, business partners and neighbours. Often they don't know what to do— Tracy Feinstein, South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag) Operations Manager
Speaking to #NightTalk's Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo, Sadag Operations Manager Tracy Feinstein says that the focus on World Mental Health Day on 10 October, and the rest of the month, is to not only talk to people suffering from mental illness.
Feinstein says that Sadag's focus this month is to also talk about mental illness to people who are not suffering from the condition, to find out how they are affected by it.
