ADVOCATING FOR EQUITABLE COVID-19 VACCINE ACCESS: AN ETHICAL IMPERATIVE

In the last 12-months, the world and our very way of life has been fundamentally altered by the global pandemic, and we have had to learn to manage the catastrophic health, psychosocial, social and economic effects that have emerged as the primary consequential outcomes of COVID-19. Recently, our attention has been re-directed to the hopes associated with the development of  efficacious vaccines to combat the virus. Management of the pandemic has profoundly shifted to issues related to vaccine development, trials and efficacy, approval, production, distribution and scalable population rollout.

Teen Suicide Awareness Week – 14 – 21 February 2021

This year for Teen Suicide Prevention Week (14-21 Feb), our message is clear – Your worth as a person is NOT determined by your Matric results!

With only a few days left until Matric results are released, many are feeling quite a bit more emotional than normal. Remember that the Grade 12’s of 2020 had to write these exams in the midst of a pandemic – something none of us have ever done before. Be kind, be gentle, and be accepting of your results.

PsySSA's Psychology Practitioners - COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

"We are therefore collating information to help assess practitioners’ COVID-19 risk and eligibility for vaccination in the current phase of the vaccine rollout programme.

The information that is to be collected will be used to assist in determining vaccine access priority and hopefully contribute to a more organised referral of practitioners to designated vaccination sites when this becomes possible."

The Mighty Pen – A PsySSA Student Division Initiative

The current climate in South Africa is one where many children are faced with many uncertainties with regards to the continuation of their primary education. The Dimphonyana Tsa Lapeng homework centre, based in Gauteng, is in desperate need of stationery and office supplies.

By assisting the homework centre to fulfil their wish list we are able to ensure that many children will be able to commence their academic year knowing that they have the stationery and material they need to continue their learning.

Both physical and monetary donations are welcome, to donate, please visit our BackABuddy link https://www.backabuddy.co.za/psyssa-fundraiser

We are appealing to you to assist us in ensuring the centre is able to continue the wonderful work that is being carried out.

Should you be able to assist us in any way, or for further information, kindly contact Kelsey Nightingale at psyssasdcomm@gmail.com
