Community-based mental health programmes
Mental Health Program
R2000 or more can help sustain essential mental health services in poorly resourced communities
Cape Mental Health reaches more than 34 000 people every year – helping individuals and their families to be more resilient and to cope with the impact of living with mental disability.
“I live in a township, far from the city where the jobs are. My family is poor and depends on my monthly disability grant to survive. Cape Mental Health has provided me with training and helped me find a job as a groundsman. Now I have a future to look forward to, despite my disability.”
“My life has changed for the better – I have learnt how to manage my disability, have met people who understand me and accept me and, best of all, I have not had a relapse or been hospitalised since I joined Cape Mental Health’s psychosocial rehabilitation programme. Now I can focus on getting a job and living independently.
These are two voices amongst the thousands whose lives have changed through the support and opportunities provided by Cape Mental Health. Your contribution can give hope, so please be generous and donate today.
