We’ve celebrated our 100th anniversary!
Cape Mental Health is committed to challenging socially restrictive and discriminatory practices affecting the mental health of all people. Our work is underpinned by a commitment to quality, excellence and professionalism at all times.
all about ability
Our slogan – all about ability – reflects our unified purpose of recognising and nurturing the abilities of our service-users, our staff and our volunteers. We see possibilities where some may only see challenges and obstacles; we focus on ABILITY rather than DISABILITY.
We provide a range of community-based services for persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities. Our services include assessment, referral, counselling and support. We offer special education care centres for children with severe or profound intellectual disability and skills training and work opportunities for youth and adults with intellectual disability. In addition, we offer psychosocial rehabilitation and peer support interventions for persons living with psychosocial disability. Our advocacy initiatives, training courses and community awareness programmes aim to raise much-needed awareness about mental disability. Through these programmes, we remove the barriers of stigma and discrimination that stand in the way of the recovery, inclusion, and empowerment of mental health care users.
You can make a difference!
Your support will restore the hope and dignity of hundreds of people. By investing in the abilities of mental health care users, you can help ensure that they live as equal citizens with dignity and with hope for a better future.
