"Lundbeck South Africa recently engaged Charlene Sunkel from the Global Mental Health Peer Network to share her experience of living with schizophrenia. The talk was multi-faceted with information ranging from symptoms experienced, to medication, to treatment challenges. What stood out the most was Charlene’s incredible achievements, and her passion for patient advocacy. It was a compelling and enlightening talk and went a long way in helping to destigmatize schizophrenia. Thank you Charlene for being so open and sharing your journey with us!" ~ Lundbeck South Africa
"GMHPN are experts at bringing in the perspective of lived experience, and helped us to think about the impact we could have on shifting the public debate on mental health in society." ~ Unilever
