BRIEF: Miss SA talks the talk on mental health

When Miss SA Shudufhadzo Musida was crowned, she promised mental health would be among her reign’s key focuses. This week, Musida launched #MindfulMondays, a partnership with the SA Depression and Anxiety Group. She plans to encourage conversations about mental health by bringing in experts and hosting discussions on her Instagram page. 

Musida said there was a “profound” need to raise awareness about mental health, and we couldn’t agree more. Her campaign kicks off on 15 February with a talk on teen suicide prevention, and we’ll definitely be tuning in.
