Steven Amos, a qualified Occupational Health Nurse from Malawi Liverpool Welcome Trust had an interactive talk with the staff where he shared about the importance of mental health. He presented on how a person may ascertain that they are mentally unwell, the stigma around mental health issues and how to get required treatment is necessary. “Mental health is not the absence of disease and there is no help without mental health” he said. He encouraged the CDHIB team to prioritize mental health to support the attainment of their goals and exceptional service delivery at the workplace.

Satakwawo Zuze, CDHIB Account Relationship Officer commenting after the metal health talk shared how “in our culture, we do not always seek help when struggling but we must break the stigma and talk to someone as expects such as psychologists help people find solutions to problems and to heal”.
