Mental health activists have urged parents to create a safe environment for their children to feel comfortable enough to speak up when they have problems.

Mental health activist Immagine Shikomba calls on parents to be more open-minded by accepting that mental health is real.

This advice comes in light of Mental Health Awareness Month, which aims to educate the public about mental health and stigma.

AB Pieters, a mental health advocate, emphasised the importance of reminding those who are suffering from mental health that they are not alone and that there is hope. 

Pieters noted that there are a lot of people in society who are battling with mental illness without even knowing it.
He encouraged those suffering from psychological issues to speak out and seek help.
