“Het is geen schande om te zorgen voor je mentale gezondheid” – Sangu Delle

 

 

When stress got to be too much for TED Fellow Sangu Delle, he had to confront his own deep prejudice: that men shouldn’t take care of their mental health. In a personal talk, Delle shares how he learned to handle anxiety in a society that’s uncomfortable with emotions. As he says: “Being honest about how we feel doesn’t make us weak — it makes us human.”

 

Sangu Delle is een ondernemer en schoon wateractivist. Als inwoner van Ghana, ziet hij een ongelooflijk potentieel in de Afrikaanse economie.
