Yivani Mbali Foundation

Bridging the social and spiritual divides for mental health and well being



About us

We're passionate about what we do

With the help and support of friends, the many lives touched by Yivani, we honour and celebrate the impactful and short life of Yivani Mbali Ndizana, a South African, young Hiltonian and until July 2018, a special member of the Edinburgh Community.

We bring about this Social Movement - to change the way society views and deals with mental health by creating awareness, identifying and facilitating intervention programs to skillfully address mental health.

Our programs

Helping individuals help themselves

The Yivani Mbali Foundation has various programs which are all curated to assist individuals and groups of people through networking, conversations and building interpersonal relationships. 

They all have the same aim: to destigmatize issues around mental health and well being all the while providing support structures for those who need it most.

If you are battling with something, do your best not to internalize it. Seek help, ask someone, you feel, will help you.

Alternatively, if the above doesn't work, make contact with the foundation. The Yivani Mbali Foundation will do it's best to support and guide you through strenuous periods.

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
