“Come down with pneumonia, and your mother will rush you to the nearest hospital for medical treatment. But dare to declare depression, and your local pastor will be driving out demons and blaming witches in your village…so deep is our fear of being the madman.”
Entrepreneur, clean-water activist, author, and sharply dressed man, Sangu Delle presented a wonderful TedTalk last month about men and mental illness. Hailing from Ghana, he offers an important perspective that touches on global concerns while focusing efforts on African culture, literally hitting home. The concepts presented are impactful, profound, and relevant to any man in the dark of mental illness, ostracized by stigma.
Thank you, Sangu Delle, for sharing your wisdom, insight, and perspective. It is highly valued and greatly appreciated.
