COVID19 INCREASED MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES -DISTRESS, TRAUMA AND ANXIETY

 

‘Imagine sleeping in a cave, far away from home. because you are scared of your father and stepmother.

It is cold and dark here and I am hungry but at least it is peaceful here”, says the 12 year-old Tsepo (not his real name) from Ha Ts’osane.

Tsepo lost his mother in 2019, followed by his father re-marrying thereafter “I was not even over the loss of my mother, and there was my father’s marriage to this woman who hates me so much. The pair both traumatize and beat me to the pulp. They call me all sorts of awful names, and that kills me inside,” he reveals, tears filling up in his eyes.
