26 January 2021
This morning I received the inaugural Active Citizenship of the Year Award and I am very grateful and honoured by this acknowledgement of my work at the South East Junction.

As I never could have done this on my own I would like to thank our volunteers, past and present, our participants, service partners and organisations, service clubs, members of Parliament, the media, businesses, community members and all others who support our work.

To give people opportunities for growth, resilience and empowerment to increase their ability to manage one’s mental health in a positive way as well as reduce the stigma so it becomes a less difficult subject to talk about or seen as strange or weak, is the driving force of the work at the Junction. And what we as a community should also strive for.

Thank you,
Nel Jans (coordinator)
