Dr Samke J Ngcobo
Doctor | Author | Keynote Speaker | Mental Health Advocate | Founder and Chief Executive of Vocal Mentality
I am Dr Samke J Ngcobo, a Medical Doctor who is living with Bipolar Disorder Type 1 since the tender age of 14years old.
I am passionate about mental health advocacy and about the development of an empathetic and compassionate understanding about the lives of those who struggle with their mental health. I believe that the best advocate about mental illnesses is the individual who is living with it and experiencing it first hand.
I am the author of a book called ‘Reflections Of a Convoluted Mind- A Journey With My Mental Illness’ which has garnered an overwhelming positive response from people who are living with mental illness, those who support them and individuals who seek to understand people who live with mental illnesses
I am an experienced keynote speaker who engages with the corporate community and community at large about mental health psycho-education through Vocal Mentality (Pty) Ltd.
I am the founder of Sisters For Mental Health (www.sistersformentalhealth.co.za) which is an initiative that is focused on creating a safe environment to engage about mental health struggles and to collaborate with other organisations which advocate for mental health. The organisation seeks to serve as an outreach resource for communities which are in need of understanding mental health.
Welcome to this exciting platform which represents various facets and expressions of my love for mental health!
