Vocal Mentality

“Giving voice to your mind”

I am passionate about mental health advocacy, especially from the voice and perspective of people who live and walk the journey of having mental illness. It is my conviction and belief that taking charge of my narrative through self-advocacy is what will challenge and overcome stigma.

I used to be enveloped by shame and confusion related to my illness. My lack of insight also led me to reject my diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder. I was crippled by the fear of how I’d be perceived if people knew about my illness and saw me in a state of vulnerability.

I overcame the shame by realising that being open about my journey was empowering and expressing my thoughts and feelings would liberate me.

Vocal Mentality is a dual platform of personal expression through the lens of lived experience with mental illness and sharing of knowledge in mental health from a professional perspective.

As a keynote speaker, I have spoken at key events both locally and internationally. I use my gift of being a public speaker to harness an impactful, memorable and tailored message for my audiences.

I work with the corporate sector, schools and community at large to psycho-educate and consult in order to empower employees and learners. I aim to break stigma surrounding mental illness one perspective at a time and to engage meaningfully.

I encourage you to engage with me bravely and authentically by "Giving voice to your mind".
