PsySSA expresses its sadness at the death of Professor Bongani Mayosi
The Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) is deeply saddened by the recent death of Professor Bongani Mayosi of the University of Cape Town. He made huge contributions to health care in the country and, considering his young age, he had a great deal more to give to our country’s sick and infirm who so desperately need the rare skills that he possessed. We express our condolences to the family of Professor Mayosi, his friends, colleagues, students and the many patients who will miss him dearly.
The death of any human being through suicide is lamented, considering that depression, which is the primary illness leading to suicide, is now a very prevalent condition. Developments in the psychological and medical treatments of depression have progressed significantly over the years, and we urge early identification and treatment. Among the main impediments in this context is the stigma that still weighs down mental health problems all over the world. We need to constantly fight the stigma of mental health problems, encourage and promote the early detection and treatment of mental disorders including depression and anxiety, which are quite common and can afflict any one of us.
PsySSA again calls on all concerned, and especially government, to push mental health care higher on the agenda. Governments all across the world need to ensure that mental health is made a much greater priority than it is currently.
