Student leaders from various institutions of higher learning on Monday launched a mental health awareness campaign to help and encourage students and learners affected by the COVID-19 pandemic not to give up, but to instead seek help. The Namibia press agency quotes Students Union of Namibia president Bernard Kavau as saying that ‘mental health has been undermined for too long, most people don’t really pay close attention to it but it’s one of the diseases that are affecting society”. Kavua added that they had also alerted the Ministry of Higher Education, Innovation and Training to help.
