Rainbow Foundation meeting

Social interaction and mutual support - thanks to the Rainbow Foundation

Support structures within the community have a vital role to play in reducing relapse and re-hospitalisation of people with a psychiatric illness.

The Rainbow Foundation comprises 25 psychosocial rehabilitation groups in the Cape Metro area for persons with a psychiatric disability.

Groups meet weekly in community facilities such as civic centres, library halls, clinics and cultural centres, for mutual social support and opportunities for recreation, skills development, participation in income-generating projects, temporary employment opportunities and the development of support networks.

We monitor individuals' mental state and provide support for families through the presentation of Family Workshops.

Meetings with group leaders are held monthly, and we liaise regularly with role players within the mental health field and the disability sector to provide a valuable and much needed service to people living with psychiatric disability.
