Mental Wellbeing

Often there is confusion about what mental health means. Many people immediately start thinking about severe conditions like chronic depression and personality disorders – but there are other factors that create feelings of anxiety and worry, that may impact our mental and emotional wellbeing.

Everyone has “mental health” and this can be thought of in terms of:

  • How we feel about ourselves and the people around us
  • Our ability to take care of ourselves physically, emotional
  • Our capacity to take care of our financial needs
  • Having the strength to overcome the difficulties and challenges we can all face at times
  • Being mentally healthy is also about believing in ourselves and having the confidence to make good decisions.

It is quite normal to experience stress and feel worried when things don’t go as you hope- The most common involve work, money matters and relationships with partners, children or other family members. Everyone faces pressure at certain times, and sometimes even a moderate level of stress makes us perform better, but stress is only healthy if it is short –lived. Excessive or prolonged stress can lead to physical illness and emotional exhaustion- which can eventually lead to mental illness

Are you degrading women, without realising it?

Those 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings on 8 August 1956, protesting against apartheid, knew this to be true. Thanks to them, and countless other voices, we now live in a world where there is more equality and freedom than 50 years ago. Thanks to these women who understood the power of their voice, and the power of their words.

Tips for a kinder festive season

It’s been a stressful year. In fact, it’s been a stressful two years! As we head into the holiday season, it’s important to take the time to not only reflect on a turbulent 2021, but also to focus on finding ways to slow down. Christmas decorations, shopping madness, carols on repeat, and general end-of-year craziness, can take their toll, often leaving you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.

An attack on the vulnerable is an attack on the social heart of us all

When violence is perpetrated against our mothers, sisters, wives and children, the whole of society suffers.
Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear.
