The sankofa bird is an Aftrican symbol from the Akan tribe in Ghana. The bird moves forward whilst looking backwards, with the seed of the future in its beak. It symbolizes the way in which remembering and learning from the past helps us plan for the future and make better choices. I think this is profoundly true for us as individuals, and also for the wider community/country.

What happens when you give people free, open-ended psychological therapy for issues such as depression and anxiety? I have heard Dr David Clarke speak about the program and it is inspiring to hear what they are doing in England.

Are you going through a life crisis and need some support? Perhaps friends and family want to help, but they don't know what to do. Check out this awesome website that colleague Dianne Swinsburg has recommended. It is a free online tool to help friends and family know what kind of help you need, so they can all pitch in. What a great idea.
