#etvSunrise: Psychiatry in distress

Chrizane Wessels |
8 December 2017

On Friday morning we investigate the shortage of psychiatrists in South Africa. Sunrise, weekdays at 5:30AM.

Reports reveal that mental illness is often side-lined in South Africa due to an inadequate workforce and insufficient funds for mental health services and research.

The Life Esidimeni tragedy where vulnerable mental illness patients died is an example of the inadequacies.

Africa wrap

In our regular Africa wrap we unpack the latest in Libya as they have now reached a deal with European and African leaders to allow migrants, facing abuse in detention camps, to return to their own countries. This came after revelations that African asylum seekers and migrants were being sold into slavery in Libya.   

Catch Sunrise Mondays to Fridays on OVHD Channel 104 and DStv channel 194 from 5:30AM -8:30AM.
