The SA Federation for Mental Health has published its Annual Report for the 2022-2023 financial year.
It’s been another wonderful year, filled with great work and achievements. This includes the refreshing of The Mental Health Policy Framework 2023- 2030 , which features several opportunities for robust implementation. The policy highlights the critical role played by NGOs in providing community based mental health services and ultimately increasing access to mental health services. The MHPF also has a sharp focus on child and adolescent mental health care, including addressing the increasing rates of suicide among young people. SAFMH strives to engage all stakeholders to support the implementation of the revised MHPF. Successful implementation of the policy requires resourcing, multisectoral collaboration, and ongoing monitoring and evaluation.
