Still on that throwback Thursday vibe, I made a leap from the poetry stage where my healing journey began to the mental health one a little under three years ago, September 2013 to be precise. I didnt have all the tools to be a mental health advocate, activist, crusader whatever the politically correct term is, but i knew i needed to occupy that stage and i did and alot of things happened not just for me but a lot of people too.
My main thing is to see attitude towards people with mental health conditions in Africa change and that is why being on this list is sorta kinda emotional (ok it is emotional) for me...just like that time Google Africa recognized this blog for the work it does in passing information on the continent about this manageable but tabooed topic.
I am open to see what connections and doors open within the continent and look forward to collaborations with people in different sectors not just mental health and health but IT, agriculture, education.
Thank you Ventures Africa for sharing my work with the continent
