Upcoming Webinar: Mental Health and Why it Matters


Welcome to the first session of our three-part webinar series on all things mental health.

In this session, we will sit down with Tsotang Letsie and Mpho Lethoba to discuss what mental health is, the role of culture and social media in shaping our experience of it and why it is a critical part of our performance in social and professional relationships.

Mpho Lethoba is the Chairman of Selibeng Book Club whose mandate is to empower high school students and college students through the aid of a variety of mental capacity building activities. She also authored I AM…#BE_the_change, her new book which mainly walks you through her personal battle with depression and her journey in personal development.

Tsotang Letsie studies Counselling at the National University Lesotho and founded two organizations in the mental health space: Direct Counselling and Empowerment Initiatives and Special Counselling For Women and Children. Tsotang offers free psycho religio-cultural counselling and is passionate about healing and building lives.
