The Masiviwe movement is a consortium of organisations led by the Foundation for Professional Development (FPD) working together to make sure everyone is heard when it comes to mental health. We have big goals. We aim to improve knowledge about mental health, break the stigma and increase access to Mental Health Services. We are fighting for access and support for all! We are making sure to reach people who are overlooked or are not often heard. That is why we have a specific focus on the integration of mental health support into HIV/TB services as well as on caring for the mental health of health care workers.
