Overview: Mental health and wellness are crucial aspects of overall wellbeing, and their understanding and acceptance are vital for progress of any society. In the African context, mental health has often been shrouded in stigma and misunderstanding, leading to a lack of proper support and care for the affected. To address the issue, “Heal Your Mind” webinar aims to create a platform that fosters a better understanding of mental health and wellness in African communities, facilitating open discussion and promoting a destigmatisation movement.
