On Thursday 28 March, the South African Human Rights Commission released a report on the state of mental healthcare in South Africa. The report, based on an investigation prompted by the Life Esidimeni tragedy, found a mental healthcare system plagued by poor services, which ‘remain in silos — the left-hand does not know what the right hand is doing’.
The Hearing was chaired by the Chairperson of the SAHRC, Adv. Bongani Majola. In addition, the panel consisted of Ms. Angie Makwetla, Adv. Bokankatla Joseph Malatji; Commissioners of the SAHRC and Professor Katherine Sorsdahl, Co-Director of the Alan J. Flisher Centre for Public Mental Health at the University of Cape Town.
The CPMH hosted Megan Moll on 2 April to speak about how she used Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) to heal herself from chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and other illnesses.
I had chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) for nearly 5 years, various forms of anxiety and sensory processing disorder (SPD) for most of my life, as well as various other related ailments and symptoms. Through exploring and training in a variety of mind-body healing modalities, I have been able to fully heal myself from all of these illnesses, and am getting healthier and more grounded every day. I will talk about my journey of healing using these modalities, and specifically about my journey with TRE®, a modality which I will also talk about in a bit more detail.
