Hello, sis Marie,

WhatsApp said I can't join because the group is full. Wow! That's how interested people are on anxiety support and awareness. I'm glad they invited you! Hope you can speak about it on one of our Thriving Thursdays!

Hi Kaye dear,

Yes the group now has to move to another platform they say.
I am definitely going to pick up a slot to speak on that for sure.
Thank you so much

Indeed mental illness is not witchcraft. It is so good to see Africa making strides in mental health awareness. And you, Marie, are part of changing a culture of denial!

Dear Tam,

Thank you so much. I go forth more intentionally knowing on whose shoulders I stand. One day I will start healing circles for women in my community inspired by you.
Light and love
