(Video) “Mental illness doesn’t have a colour, it doesn’t have a face.”

by: Sheilan Clarke - 14 June 2017

Mental health needs to be de-stigmatised. Last week we introduced you to Thabiso Mailula who spoke about his work as Senior Psychological Facilitator at the Talisman Foundation. (You can watch the video here.) As part of us exploring this often taboo subject, we spoke to Tasneem Motara. She’s an up-and-coming young politician and Member of the National Council of Provinces in Parliament for the ANC and is personally dealing with a mental illness. 

Watch as Tasneem talks about seeking help, the stigma in communities and much more.
