Mental Health is a Nation’s Wealth
Durban and Coastal Mental Health is the largest Mental Health Organisation in South Africa.
We are an independent, registered not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation (002-158 NPO), affiliated to the SA Federation for Mental Health. Durban and Coastal Mental Health is tax exempt and has Section 18A(1) status.
We work with individuals, families and communities to achieve the highest possible level of mental health for all by:
- developing equal, caring services for people having difficulty coping with everyday life, and for children and adults with mental disabilities;
- identifying community mental health needs and responding appropriately;
- creating public awareness of mental health issues; and
- striving for recognition and protection of mental health rights.
Our Head Office is situated at 3 Hatton Avenue, Sherwood, 7 km from Durban Central. In addition to our Social Work Services, we run 7 Residential Care Centres and 9 Happy Hours Day Care Centres for children with profound and severe intellectual disability.
Through our 9 Challenge Protective Training Workshops, we offer protective employment and psycho-social rehabilitation for adults with mental disabilities.
