This is Edona—emerging poet and longtime friend of mindshare through her work with the Mental Health Coalition of SA.

In this video Edona discusses growing up in a bilingual household without a strong understanding of mental health, what that meant when she was diagnosed with schizophrenia, how she found comfort, and where she is at today with her diagnosis and journey.
