Mental health in storytelling is a contemporary issue that cuts across both the part of the storyteller and how African writers portray people with mental health issues in their stories. 

Here at TVO TRIBE, we understand the need to be expressive, hence, we do not trifle with African voices. We want interested writers, poets, scribblers, and artists to explore how mental health affects storytelling. The goal is to read your strong thoughts, opinions, and beliefs. We promise not to judge you. 

Do you have reservations about the way African creative discuss mental health? What is your opinion about mental health issues and do you think this affects the way we tell our stories?
