Mental Health Awareness Month
To honour the mental awareness month, Little Eden donated this artwork to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. This is to bring awareness to mental health problems and honour the late Mr. Nelson Mandela’s contribution to the Mental Health Awareness cause and his visit at Little Eden during the years of giving his unmeasurable philanthropic contribution.
Little Eden is a home to 300 children and adults with profound intellectual disability. Approximately 75% of the residents were abandoned or came from poverty stricken homes. Theya are completely dependent on the organisation 24-hours a day for all their spiritual, physical, mental and emotional needs. The residents range in age, from three years to over 60 years. Once they are taken in at Little Eden they become part of the family and spend the rest of their lives there in an atmosphere of warmth, cate, love and stimulation.
Mental Health Awareness Month aims not only to educate the public about mental health but also reduce the stigma and discrimination that people with mental illness are often subjected to.
Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse and job stress are common, affecting individuals, their families and co-workers, and the broader community. In addition, they have a direct impact on workplaces through increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased costs. Very few South Africans seek treatment for their mental disorders. Mental illness can be treated at your nearest clinic, hospital or healthcare provider.
Mental health problems are the result of a complex interplay between biological, psychological, social and environmental factors. There is increasing evidence that both the content and context of work can play a role in the development of mental health problems in the workplace.
