Professor of Global Mental Health and Development Dr. Crick Lund sheds light on the reality of mental health in South Africa. Photo: Delivered

Did you know that only one in ten people with a mental illness has access to treatment?
This was announced by the South African Depression and Anxiety Council (Sadag) during a panel discussion on October 13th highlighting World Mental Health Day (October 10th) and the reality of mental health in South Africa today.

The international theme of World Mental Health Day this year was “Mental health in an unequal world”, a reality that could not be more obvious to South Africa.
“The pandemic exerted its impact not only directly by adding to people’s anxiety and stress related to the impending illness or loss of loved ones, but also through the economic impact,” said panelist Dr Health and Development.

He was accompanied by traditional healer Taz Sithole and Kagisho Maaroganye, board member of the South African Society of Psychiatrists.
Traditional healer Taz Sithole draws attention to the effects of Covid-19 and the mental health of Africans. Photo: Delivered “Covid-19 has really made an already unequal world worse, especially for the African people, because the already prevalent narrative we operate on doesn’t include African people – access to land or access to rights of passage,” Sithole said .
So when we think of the country’s mental health as a whole, it’s not just about treatment and care, Lund said.
“Yes, the care and treatment in itself is incredibly important, but it is also about working for better living conditions for everyone, it is about proving basic food security and basic income security.
“The more we can do to address these upstream drivers of mental health problems, the better.”
According to an infographic published by Sadag on October 10th, communication channels have seen a nearly 160% increase in calls compared to 2019.
From January to September the group saw:
A total of 466,407 calls were received, an average of 2,200 calls per day.
That is 47.75% more than in the previous year.
One in five calls to the hotline was suicide.
A total of 85,516 suicide hotline calls were recorded
A total of 105,390 online help requests were submitted.
Sadag director Cassey Chambers added that mental illness does not discriminate, so it is important to improve access to treatment and reduce stigma. “We owe it to anyone who feels alone, isolated, or ashamed of their mental illness. We owe it to families who are affected and who don’t know how to get help or support, and we owe it to our most vulnerable group of people who are unable to speak for themselves and one today and every day deserve better care and treatment. “Said Chambers.
Do you need to speak to someone? Sadag Helplines provide free telephone advice, information, recommendations and resources:
Call the Sadag hotline on 0800 21 22 23, 0800 70 80 90 or 0800 456 789
Chat online with an advisor seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. using the Cipla WhatsApp chatline on 076 882 2775.
SMS 31393 or 32312 and an advisor will call you back – seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Did you know that only one in ten people with mental illness has access to treatment?

This was announced by the South African Depression and Anxiety Council (Sadag) during a panel discussion on October 13th in which the World Mental Health Day (October 10th) and the reality of mental health in South Africa were highlighted today.

The international theme of World Mental Health Day this year was “Mental Health in an Unequal World,” a reality that could not be more obvious to South Africa.

“The pandemic exerted its influence not only directly by increasing people’s fear and stress related to the threat of illness or the loss of loved ones, but also through the economic impact, “said panelist Dr Health and Development.

He was led by traditional healer Taz Sithole and the board member of South Afric to Society of Psychiatrists, Kagisho Maaroganye.

“Covid-19 has really made an already unequal world worse, especially for African people, because the already prevailing narrative under which we operate does not include African people – Access to land or access to transit rights, “said Sithole.

So when we think of the overall mental health of the country, it’s not just about treatment and care, said Lund.

” Yes, the care and Treatment is incredibly important in itself, but it is also about working for better living conditions for everyone; it is about demonstrating basic food security and basic income security.

“The more we can do about these upstream drivers of mental health Addressing health problems the better. ”

According to an infographic published by Sadag on October 10, communication channels have seen an increase in calls compared to 2019 e registered by nearly 160%.

Sadag director Cassey Chambers added that mental illness does not discriminate, so it is important to improve access to treatment and reduce stigma. “We owe it to anyone who feels alone, isolated, or ashamed of their mental illness. We owe it to families who are affected and who don’t know how to get help or support, and we owe it to our most vulnerable group of people who are unable to speak for themselves and one today and every day deserve better care and treatment. “Said Chambers.
