Our mental health advocacy work aims to change major structural and attitudinal barriers to achieving positive mental health outcomes for everyone in South Africa.

We want mental health to become everyone’s business, as it is a core component of all aspects of health and wellbeing.

Achievements from 2022/2023 include:

Partnership Development

Partnerships are a fundamental cornerstone of SAFMH’s work in the mental health, disability and human rights sectors, locally and internationally. It enables us to ensure mental health is effectively integrated into the work of other organisations, stakeholders and decision-making platforms.

Some of our key partners include the Departments of Health and Social
Development, World Federation for Mental Health, United for Global Mental Health, the South African Disability Alliance, UNICEF, and our 17 Mental Health Societies. We also participate in forums such as the Ministerial Advisory Committee on Mental Health and the Presidential Working Group for Disability.
