My Mind My Funk
Mental health social enterprise which helps victims of rape, epilepsy and mental health issues.
MMMF is focused on the social and preventative aspects of mental health as opposed to the curative, which in too many cases involves traditional healers or subpar psychiatric help. The organisation tries to include mental health awareness in everyday life, by working with young people to promote wellness in their communities all across Africa. My Mind My Funk is created by Sitawa Wafula after a traumatic experience, a bipolar disorder diagnosis, and epilepsy discovery. She discovered that there wasn’t enough information in Africa that she could access to help her understand how to cope and further understand her physical and mental health. In addition, there was a lot of stigma surrounding her mental health, which made the process of dealing with things even more challenging.
