On a cold winter day, Kgotso Molefe sits on the benches of a restaurant in Fourways, Johannesburg.
He's been waiting for more than an hour for our appointment.
"I like to be extra early," says the 22-year-old as I greet and introduce myself.
A cold front has been moving over the interior and grey clouds are gathering in its wake.
The air is icy cold, Molefe rubs his hands together then points to the platform he'll be bungee jumping off on October 10, World Mental Health Day.
The drop is 50 metres and he will attempt to jump more than 158 times in 24 hours - which is the current Guinness World Record.
The record was set by a 40-year-old Australian in 2014. "It's a risk and it's one I'm willing to take," Molefe says.
He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2013 and feels not much is being done for people who suffer from mental illnesses.
"Mental health services is South Africa are appalling[...]Black people are the most affected by mental illnesses and the most apparent challenge is the stigma," he says.
"We need to change the mentality before we can do anything more," he added.
Molefe is looking at raising awareness on his own and says established organisations are not doing enough.
