Mental Health Awareness

October is South African Mental Health Awareness Month. An initiative pioneered to de-stigmatise mental illness and promote treatments such as counselling, self care and medical diagnosis. The message of the campaign is simple: there is no shame in seeking help for mental illness. Anyone who suspects that they are suffering from a mental illness is encouraged to reach out. It can be to friends, family, a medical doctor or a local counselor for guidance.

The goal of Mental Health Awareness Month is to educate the public about mental health, teaching people about the stressors which can lead to mental illness. One key focus is mental health awareness in the workplace. Examining the balance between workplace pressure and lack of incentive, government organisations are working towards placing more mental health wellness programmes in corporate and government offices, ensuring that mental health problems can be detected as early as possible and treated immediately, to prevent illnesses such as clinical depression, acute stress disorder and anxiety.

What Is Mental Health?

Mental health is "a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to her or his community," according to the South African Federation for Mental Health.

This organisation focuses on promoting mental health for all South Africans. They also promote and protect the rights of individuals with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities. This Mental Health Awareness Month, the SAFMH are championing conversations around social media usage and suicide.

On World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2019, the SAFMH invite students, teachers and parents to an open dialogue on the topic of suicide and social media at WITS University. An engaging conversation about the links between social media usage and increased suicide rates, this is an excellent opportunity to debate and contribute to mental health awareness. There will be a number of interactive activities for all to enjoy, as well as helpful information packs for all attendees.

Mental Health Awareness Month

When Is It?

Thursday, 10 October 2019 at 12:00 - 14:00.

Where Is It?

WITS University, Library Lawns, 1 Jan Smuts Ave, Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

Self Care Practices

Self care is one of the most important good mental health practices, feeding your mind, soul and body with exactly what they need to keep you running in tip-top condition. Self care can be as simple as taking a long soak in the bathtub, or more complex like finding a new hobby. However, the first goal of your self care routine should be to prioritise yourself for a set period of time. This may mean shutting out external distractions like social media, emails and work-related stressors. It can also mean spending time alone away from family and friends. Whichever way you choose to practice self care this Mental Health Awareness Month, remember you cannot help others without helping yourself first.


Did you know that Mental Health Awareness Month coincides with Inktober? A global initiative started in 2009 by Jake Parker, Inktober encourages artists and amateur doodlers to pick up their pens and get inking. With 31 prompts, Inktober inspires you to create something new each day. You can complete them all or do as many as you like. The only rules are that you must draw in ink and you must post your drawings on social media with the hashtag #inktober2019.

Why not express yourself in a creative way this Mental Health Awareness Month by joining in on Inktober? It's all about having a positive mindset, so go on and spoil yourself with a new ink pen and some absorbent blot paper. Self care sorted!

Click here for more information about how participate in Inktober.

Rock of Ages Has Arrived!

Come on, feel the noize!” Broadway’s smash hit musical, Rock of Ages, will rock Montecasino’s Teatro for the very first time. This jukebox musical features 28 classic rock songs from the 1980s, including hits like Don’t Stop Believin', The Final Countdown, Here I Go Again and many more. As the humorous, high-energy storyline unfolds, the audience will take a journey down memory lane, while singing along to rock anthems that come alive on stage. Rock of Ages is a feel-good stage production where audiences are rocking in their seats at every performance.

The extraordinary characters and epic story that turned Rock of Ages into a global phenomenon are brought to life by a dynamic all-South Africa cast, band and production team. The star-studded Rock of Ages cast features this country’s finest talent across the entertainment spectrum including musical theatre, television shows, concerts, movies and recording artists.

Rock of Ages

The Cast

Vocalist, producer and WONDERboom band front man, Cito (Jesus Christ Superstar, Chess – The Musical, Black Sails) is cast as the male lead playing Stacee Jaxx; with The Voice SA 2017 runner up, Josh Ansley (Jesus Christ Superstar) in the role of Drew; and singer, actor, director and producer, Zak Hendrikz (Mr Bones 2, Rocky Horror Show) as Lonny. Popular actor, writer and award-winning director, Neels Clasen (Mamma Mia!, We Will Rock You, Annie) is cast as Hertz; and actor and drama lecturer, Matt Counihan (Jersey Boys, West Side Story, Saturday Night Fever), plays the role of Franz. 21-year-old female lead, Jessica Driver (Born to Perform, Night with the Stars) plays Sherrie; with Lois du Plessis (We Will Rock You, Backstage, Jozi Streets) in the role of Justice, who has returned to South Africa after living in the USA for almost 12 years.

Rock of Ages

Returning from the highly successful CHICAGO The Musical world tour, is former West End and SA performer, Craig Urbani (Sound of Music, West Side Story, Grease); Natasha van der Merwe (Mamma Mia!, Sister Act); and Raquel Munn (Singin’ in the Rain, Saturday Night Fever) in principal roles with fellow CHICAGO cast members, Alex Girard and Stefania du Toit joining Lara Kleynhans and Chantel Stanfield to complete the female ensemble.

Rock of Ages

About Rock of Ages

Nominated for five Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Rock of Ages captures the iconic era that was the big bad 1980s Hollywood. The nostalgic rock anthems include the music of Bon Jovi, Journey, Twisted Sister, Styx, Poison, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and many other great rock bands - this musical truly is larger than life.

After six years on Broadway, followed by a Las Vegas season and a nationwide tour of the USA and productions across the globe, this smash hit musical guarantees an evening of “high energy feel-good nostalgia” (Sunday Express) and a show that’s “impossible to resist” (New York Times).

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages is a rock ‘n roll romance, set on the Sunset Strip in The Bourbon Room, the last epic venue where the legendary Stacee Jaxx returns to the stage and rock-n-roll dreamers line up to turn their fantasies into reality.

Rock of Ages is a seriously mindless, ridiculously enjoyable glamour-rock musical that's not to be missed! It’s the hilarious book by Chris D’Arienzo that drives the piece. There’s great comedy, stellar performances and great music – all the ingredients of a great night out!

Please note: Adult themes, PG13 is recommended.

What Is It?

Giselle is undoubtedly one of the most tragically beautiful ballet's to see live. Don't miss your chance to revel in the exquisite grace of this French classic at Joburg Theatre this October. Joburg Ballet presents Giselle as their closing production for the 2019 season. French principal dancer Anaïs Chalendard will share the title role with Joburg Ballet dancers. She will dance in three of the ten performances during the season. Miss Chalendard made her acclaimed Joburg Ballet debut earlier in the season as a guest artist in The Sleeping Beauty. The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform with Joburg Ballet during this season.

Giselle is a beautiful young peasant woman, tricked into falling in love with an engaged aristocrat, Duke Albrecht. The young woman dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover's secret. Summoned from her grave by a mysterious group of supernatural women, the Wilis, Giselle is tasked with dancing her beloved to his death. However, she finds it in her heart to forgive Albrecht for his deceit, narrowly saving him from the Wilis and herself from becoming one of them.

This ballet is haunting, splendid and one of the most technically difficult for dancers to perform. It would be a shame to miss it, so make sure to book your tickets as soon as possible.
