Sassa staff talk about mental health

Workers from the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) Khayelitsha office commemorated Heritage Day one day early on Thursday September 23 by creating a platform to raise the importance of one’s wellbeing while openly talking about depression. The workers gathered at the popular Kwa Ace place where one of their colleagues shared their experiences of dealing with depression and ways of overcoming it. SASSA deputy facility manager at the Khayelitsha office, Freddie Sidali, said instead of just celebrating the day they wanted to talk about important issues so they could empower their staff.
