Dylan Benyon founded Cognition & Co in 2018 as a means to advocate for mental health in South Africa and give those wanting to study in the field of psychology a place to find information and networking opportunities. His goal has always been to close the gap between students and professionals by creating mentorship initiatives and hosting conferences that allow the professionals to share their experience and insight with aspiring young students. Benyon is committed to doing all that he can to make mental healthcare accessible and available to anyone who needs it, and hopes to see massive strides taken towards the destigmatisation of mental illness in all societies and cultures in South Africa. Earlier this year, Benyon had his first paper published, and has also been selected to present one of his abstracts at the International Congress of Psychology 2020+ in Prague.
