For most of my young life, I was raised in the townships and got to experience and see how many people in my black community dealt with hurt and suffering caused by trauma. At a very young age, I experienced a couple of traumas that caused me to deal with them the way I saw everybody else around me dealing with me and that was by sweeping it under the rug, never to be spoken about again but somehow expressing the pain through anger without realizing. After my siblings were born, I knew that I never wanted them to grow up like me. I wanted them to have someone to always talk to about anything and learn how to deal with their pain and suffering. This motivated me to want to do the same for everyone else who needed a shoulder to cry on hence my passion to be a clinical psychologist. I currently have an honours degree in social sciences (psychology). I was and still am exposed to a community that cannot afford to take care of their mental health. Therefore I take it upon myself to volunteer my time whenever/wherever needed to use my unique set of skills, abilities, privileges, resources, and knowledge in a way that increases equality and privilege for all in terms of mental health. After dealing with depression 3 years ago and now dealing with panic attacks because of the trauma I recently experienced, it is very important to me to reach out to those who need the help, just like I did. Besides trying to be there for everyone, I spend most of my time doing outdoor activities with my sisters and friends to experience the beauty of nature.
Sono una laureanda in Psicologia Clinica, con una laurea in Scienze e Tecniche Psicologiche. Nei momenti più difficili della mia vita, quelli durante i quali credi che nessuno possa capirti, ho avuto l'Arte come compagna delle mie notti insonni. Grazie all'arte sono poi riuscita a trovare le parole per spiegare e ad accorgermi che in realtà c'erano tante persone pronte ad ascoltare. C'è sempre qualcosa o qualcuno in grado di tirarti in salvo, l'importante è tendere la mano per poter trovare quella dell'altro.

I was an alcoholic for many years. I drank to numb the pain, because I didn’t know any other way to cope with the mental pain I was experiencing. But God is good, and I was able to stop drinking, and I am now 17 years sober. I knew something was not quite right, but I didn’t know what it was. It turned out, I have Male Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, and High Functioning Autism. I am now in recovery, I practice my DBT skills daily. I do still have those ‘moments’ where I get triggered and just lose my cool, but those moments are becoming father and farther apart. I’m open to talk about anything. I’m not an expert, but I can share you things that work for me. Don’t hesitate to connect with me. Just leave me a message and I will reply you as soon as I can. This is my favorite proverb, “No matter how far you’ve gone down the wrong road, turn back. “
I'm Mpho Kgopane from a small village called Gamaroga in Limpopo Burgesfort. I live with my mother and two siblings my parents separated in 2016 but not divorced; I stay with my mother because of traditional complications and we are not allowed to visit our father or have any kind of communication with him because according to our tradition my father didn't pay the bride price. I want to volunteer because I know there are lot of children out there who are mistreated by their parents and some denied communication channels with their parents which makes them less valuable. I like to read and help people around my community with the skills I obtain during my honours years in psychology.
