Dr Samke Ngcobo is a dynamic, driven and passionate medical professional who has a passion for issues related to mental health advocacy and mental health psycho-education.
Samke is living with Bipolar Disorder since the age of 14 years old (for the past 21 years). I have a commendable work ethic and excellent interpersonal skills. She values purpose-driven living and creating a legacy that will benefit the greater good in the long-term through philanthropy.
Dr Samke is the author of a book called Reflections Of A Convoluted Mind: A journey with my mental illness. It was inspired by my desire to create an awareness and understanding about the life of someone who is living with a mental illness. I felt that I could share valuable insights as someone who lives with a mental illness and as a doctor to individuals like myself. The intention is to humanise this journey through sharing my thoughts and reflections related to it.
