Media Invite: SAHRC Mpumalanga Office hosts an information session on mental healthcare as a human right

Attention: Editors and Reporters

17 NOVEMBER 2021

The Mpumalanga Provincial Office (MPO) will be hosting an information session to raise awareness on the right to healthcare in the context of COVID-19 with a specific focus on mental health under the theme: “Mental Healthcare is a Human Right”. The session is aimed at empowering men about their mental healthcare as it is severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic (“the pandemic”).
The pandemic is having huge impacts on mental and emotional health and well-being, and in gendered ways. Men are often less likely to talk about or seek help for emotional and psychological problems because it may be seen as more manly to stay silent and bottle up their feelings.
The information session is scheduled to take place on 18 November 2021 at 10h00 – 14h00, Elukwatini Community Hall.
