Cape Mental Health


Cape Mental Health is an award-winning non-profit organisation providing, or facilitating, comprehensive, proactive and enabling mental health services in the Western Cape. We are committed to challenging socially restrictive and discriminatory practices affecting the mental health of all people, and our work is underpinned by a commitment to quality, excellence and professionalism. We reach more than 21 000 people annually with a staff complement of 157 members across 22 intervention programmes.
Our community-based services provide enabling mental health care to persons with emotional adjustment problems, and those with mental disability (intellectual and or psychiatric/psychosocial), and adopt a holistic, family-focused approach. Our life skills and work skills projects for persons with mental disability include a focus on skills training and workplace experience, individual job coaching and ongoing support, on-site support for the employer and employee, reasonable accommodation, and assistance with support structures. We are recognised at national and international levels and were awarded a prestigious Zero Project Innovative Practice Award 2017 for our Training Workshops Unlimited’s intensive skills development and career path training programme for adults with intellectual disability.
