Event 1 – The Launch
At MYND Initiative Incorporated, we believe that mental health matters to everyone. We are a not-for-profit organisation seeking to identify areas of improvement relating to the mental health of each member of the community at the grassroots level, by stimulating and continuing conversations on mental health as well as encouraging the practice of proper mental health hygiene.
Our vision is that each individual, family and community will collectively develop a better awareness and understanding of mental health issues as well as of the importance of mental health in general, such that the associated stigmatisation, discrimination and isolation are reduced. In this vision, we are also more likely to come together to create an environment where help-seeking behaviours are encouraged, compassionate support is provided, and we would be open to education on mental health issues, and in so doing create communities of understanding…
Individuals with mental health issues will feel safe to disclose their mental health issues, as well as psychological and social stressors, without fear of being stigmatised, discriminated against or isolated as a result.
Practises, encourages and promotes positive mental health hygiene among themselves and in others.
Welcomes and continues ongoing discussions about mental health issues, thereby increasing openness amongst individuals, families and communities to discussing mental health issues.
