"Change will not come if we wait for some other person, Or if we wait for some other time.
We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
The South African Federation for Mental Health attended the presidential inauguration of Cyril Ramaphosa. Thousands of South Africans filled Loftus Stadium on Saturday 25th May 2019. The festivities ranged from cultural performances by the Tshwane Gospel Choir and the South African National Defence Force’s (SANDF’s) marching band. The atmosphere throughout the day was that of excitement as many gathered to witness this momentous occasion.
Please note that the SAFMH offices will close on the 19th of December, and open again on the 4th of January 2016. The Human Rights Watch reporting system for human rights violations will therefore not be responding to any calls, smses, whatsapp messages or emails during this time.
