 The Couch Hikes Tankwa Camino for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention

The Couch Hikes Tankwa Camino for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention

Personal message

Join Clinical Psychologist Yumna Zubi and Psychiatrist Dr. Alicia Porter alongside a group of other practitioners, as they channel their inner strength and strong minds to take on the Tankwa Camino hiking trail (27km per day for 10 days) in an effort to raise awareness for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

The Couch, a psychology and psychiatry practice in Gauteng, aims to create an awareness about the importance of mental health and in doing so hopes to break the stigma around mental illness. The South African Depression and Anxiety Group shares the same goal and has been successful at assisting thousands of those in need through the accessibility of their free help lines and support groups.

We would like to lend a helping hand toward this cause and you can too, simply click on the link and make a donation towards keeping SADAG services available.
