I am currently a second year psychology student with a love for reading and helping people. I know how it feels to be lonely yet in the company of 10 people and I would like to help people feel less lonely and more good about themselves. I would also like to share tips on how to feel better and get over depressive periods (some tips i personally use)
Hi I'm Laily, I'm 21 years old and a third year psychology student. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and listening to true crime podcasts on my way to work or university. I am passionate about mental health and wellbeing, and hope to do my part by listening and supporting people in these tough times. By volunteering, I hope to make a difference through spreading kindness and positivity, and connecting with people.
I hold a degree and honours degree in psychology. I choose this career path because I always thought i was a "helper". I wanted to just help people but now the dream is not just to help but to make an impact and to empower. I would like to further my studies one day and become a clinical psychologist.
Hai, I'm Fina and I'm here to listen. Growing up, I have several incidents that cause me great discomfort and often makes me anxious. Up until 3 years ago, I managed to be more open about them. I could never do that if it weren't for my friends who listen and never judge what I've been through. I knew this project from a coffee shop where I used to go and hearing about it makes me feel like I want to join it. To do what my friends did to me, listen to my stories and made me feel better.

I am a student from Myfiladelfia pastoral counselors. My second year. I have a passion for people and have lots of empathy. I am use to listen to others. Since I was young people open up to me, tell me their story. I would like to help where I can.
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.
I am a mental health nurse with mental health issues. My diagnoses include; insomnia, severe anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, ocd, and major depressive disorder. I get it and can sympathize. I've been at the end of my rope and attempted ending things but kept on ;
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.
