Bringing Change to Youth Leadership

“I am bringing change by creating awareness on mental health.”

We met SADAG KZN through the Tumaini youth group. My history began from the youth and into the mental health programme through the dance and the mentorship programme.

My work included helping to organize young people to attend the dance class and mentoring the under 16 years youth.

The program helped me to cope with stress and anxiety and helped improve my leadership skills. Through SADAG I have improved with my leadership skills and organizational skills. It has helped young people in our community to cope with their mental status.

I am bringing change by creating awareness on mental health. Distance and transportation could have been the highest challenges and we had issues whereby the mentors were not skilled enough to mentor the mentees. My future plans include to grow the youth and create more awareness on suicide and mental health.
