Good questions for good health: Is depression real?

A large part of preventing and treating depression is to be conscious and cautious of the illness. This means being free to talk about depression. The World Health Organisation’s campaign on depression is aimed at encouraging more people to freely talk about depression and to seek help if need be. But in order to talk about depression, we must be knowledgeable of its Symptoms and effect.

This month we provide you with a free downloadable booklet entitled “Depression; what you need to know.” This booklet was compiled by the National Institute of Mental Health. It will help you learn more about depression and how affects people of all ages. We urge all parents to read the section on Teens (page 7-8) so as to be more aware of how to help your child if you think they might be depressed.

ZASA Magazine - Issue 21 - June 2017_Content

There is just too much for us to summarise in a paragraph but let’s give this a try… Chiawa Management Area on the Lower Zambezi is host to the cozy Kasaka River lodge – read about it in this issue; we talk about trust when it comes to matters concerning money; we also held out on the release to catch the high profile Newcastle 1st Anniversary Dinner that took place this past weekend (performing artist was none other than K’million and the guests of honour included the Zambian High Commissioner and Amajuba District Mayor) – we have video and more pictures coming shortly; Victoria interviews the accomplished Precious Mwamulima (founder of Chitemwuko); and Steven unpacks depression as we continue the #GQ4GH series. And no, that’s not all…

As always – get yourself something nice to sip on and enjoy 🙂
