Welcome to the final session of our three-part webinar on mental health! For this last conversation, we sit down with Tšepo Nteso and ‘Mampheng-Pheng Molefe to discuss the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on our mental and emotional health.

We delve into what stressors are heightened during this time, how to pay attention to the quality of our individual and collective mental wellbeing, and what we can do to care for ourselves and each other. 

Tšepo Nteso is a final-year Nursing and Midwifery student at the National University of Lesotho. He is also a mental health activist and the former Deputy President of NUL Student Nurse Association. He lives by the words, “The most powerful weapon is not that created by man. It is your mind.”

Mampheng-Pheng Molefe just graduated with a bachelor’s degree in International Politics from Beijing, China. She is the chairperson and founder of Young Adults Fighting Depression (YAFID), a Lesotho-based organization aimed at raising awareness on mental health. She loves reading self help books and is a big fan of soccer.

Catch the webinar live on our Facebook page at 4 PM SAST this coming Wednesday, 29 July 2020.
