Do you leave your Doctor’s appointment filled with more questions and not enough time? Sometimes feel too silly to ask all the questions you have on your symptoms and side effects you are experiencing? Join SADAG’s Facebook Friday FREE online Q&A to ask expert psychiatrists about your diagnosis, the symptoms and medication queries and where to go for help.
Starting the conversation about mental illness and encouraging people to ask questions helps to destigmatise mental health in our society. “Members of the community and those who suffer from a mental health issue need to consider bravely coming forward to help educate those people who misunderstand mental health. You never know, but one conversation you have with someone who misunderstands it can change the life of another person and, perhaps, even save their life” says Psychiatrist Dr Anthony Koller
SADAG is giving Facebook users the opportunity to get free online help to ask expert psychiatrists about their Mental Health issues that they wouldn’t normally get a chance or time to ask their doctor, or get answers for questions about symptoms that they or a loved one may be experiencing. They can even ask on behalf of their loved ones who live with a Mental Illness.
Facebook Friday FREE Q&A on 10th March will be held by two expert Psychiatrists from Akeso Milnerton Clinic – Dr Anthony Koller will be chatting at 1pm – 2pm and Dr Aneshree Moodley will continue and finish off the discussion from 7pm – 8pm.
