JUNE 16 YOUTH DAY

Remembering the legacy of Youth Day is important for all South Africans. This remembering is fundamentally important for all of us in the health and mental health profession. Given the inequalities in our society, the rampant poverty, and the continued struggles for humanity among the vulnerable and marginalised, it is critically urgent that the legacy of systemic oppression be addressed both within ourselves, as well as within society. Our responsibility is to understand, examine, teach, soothe and to confront and resist the overt and subtle manifestations of racism, sexism and all other oppressions. We can also continue to advocate for conditions that restore the dignity and humanity of all. It is the best way we can honour the youth of 1976, and the youth of 2020. As PsySSA, we can do that.
