Where to Get: Free Counselling

I’m writing this after hearing that the lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington, passed away yesterday, in an apparent suicide. Hearing about this brought feelings that I thought I had dealt with to the surface. This man and his band got me through rough days, opened me up to a friendship with a fellow Linkin Park lover, and this friend of mine and her family became the second family that helped me survive university. Whenever we had rough days, we’d listen to Hybrid Theory, and somehow be pulled out of our depressive funk. I got my own support system from them, and it is time for me to help you have a support system when you feel your lowest, and all the music in the world is not helping:

They offer their services at each primary care clinic in Chitungwiza, Gweru and Harare at the moment.

All faiths are welcome, and the counselling is free.

I would love to hear what other places offer free counselling, to cater for those who may be hindered by money. Let’s seek help, for ourselves, for our families.

Until next time… your Quarter Wife.

    Today is Day 14 of the #30DayAfriBlogger Challenge, and as we are talking about mental health, I felt this would be a good post to repeat. If you need help, don’t be hindered by money, you can get counselling and therapy for free. Let’s address mental health in our African society, let’s end the cycle of shame. Enjoy.
