INSTOPP Mentorship Programme - Mental Health

Fri Feb 4, 08:00 - Fri Nov 11, 09:00


Join INSTOPP for an interactive mentorship session on Mental Health.


We often need assistance or guidance from others who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in a specific area of occupational therapy in practice. While books and training can be helpful on their own, getting answers to specific questions can even be more helpful and encouraging. INSTOPP brings you mentorship sessions where seasoned mentor OTs meet with mentee OTs to give guidance, share expertise and boost morale. The mental health sessions are hosted and facilitated by Haneke Jonas and Chanette van der Merwe, with special guests throughout the year. 


For INSTOPP members, the series of 9 sessions are FREE of charge. Non-members can purchase the series of 9 sessions, or per single session depending on your interest.

Please note: Do not select the member discount option if you are not a fully paid INSTOPP member! This will result in you missing out on the amazing course/workshop/webinar INSTOPP is offering.


All sessions run on a Friday from 08h00 – 09h00. The format is 15 minutes topic discussion by the presenter and 45 minutes Q&A.

Both Haneke and Chanette have been working in private practice for many years, working with mental health clients. The experience and wisdom gained in their day-to-day practices are invaluable. They will be the hosts and facilitators of sessions, alongside other seasoned mental health OTs, to provide various views and experiences to mentees.
