Alma Dante continues to be passionate about advocating the importance of mental health and the need for us all to maintain it regularly, that is on daily or weekly basis. This passion came from years of observing different generations of men and women who had one way of dealing with these difficult issues - not dealing with them at all! Needless to say, unresolved issues are passed on to new generations and we owe it to ourselves and generations to come to continue to take mental health seriously on both personal and societal levels.
Dealing with personal mental health changes or the ones of family members or even mental health challenges inspired by family members, can be extremely difficult. Navigating through a maze of options for help while likely feeling paralized, is not easy and nearly defeating at times of great weakness.
One of the important elements in bettering mental health for everyone is to continue to break any leftover stigma associated with mental health. At Mala Inc., we recognise that education and advocacy continue to be crucial particularly within organisations that have effect on large numbers of people such as employment places, educational institutions, etc.
