One of the ways in which CMH has been able to ensure continued support to persons living with psychosocial disability, is with the roll-out of remote services since the start of South Africa’s COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
Our pro-active leadership pre-empted the implementation of a national lockdown and effectively managed and developed virtual mental health services that continue to the present day in a hybrid model of service provision that includes both virtual and partial in-facility services.
One of the prongs of this innovation is the innovative implementation of a scheduled day programme for members with intellectual disability as well as remote support groups under our Fountain House SA and Rainbow Foundation projects. Our aim has been to ensure that the members receive continued care and support for their wellbeing during lockdown.
