Join SADAG’s upcoming
Daily Facebook Expert Online Q&A’s

Every Day this week from 1pm - 2pm

SADAG have been running biweekly Facebook Friday online expert chats for 3-4 years already – but those were only twice a month. And since lockdown, with more people reaching out to us on social media and needing information, and with the rules that people should self-isolate we decided to run daily online chats to try meet the need and provide free expert advice for the thousands of people at home feeling anxious, worried, stressed and depressed during lockdown.

We have run daily chats from Monday to Friday with expert psychiatrists and psychologists covering a diverse range of issues related to mental health during COVID19 and lockdown. We have had between 5 000 – 14 000 people engaged per chat each day. Anyone can log in and engage, and get free professional help, advice and tips.

Don’t miss this week’s great line up of top experts covering topics such as substance abuse, students mental health, how to support a loved one, the mental health impact on frontline and healthcare workers, and a Q&A session with a psychiatrist to discuss meds, side effects, treatment and managing symptoms.

Join the LIVE chats this week with thousands of other South Africans from Monday to Friday from 1pm – 2pm on SADAG’s Facebook page (The South African Depression and Anxiety Group).
