Cape Support for Mental Health (CSMH)

Who we are:

Cape Support for Mental Health is a family support group, which was founded in 1981 by the relatives of people suffering from schizophrenia.

• To give support to families of people affected by schizophrenia 
• To enlighten and educate relatives and the public about schizophrenia 
• To reduce the stigma associated with schizophrenia 

What we do:
We hold monthly meetings which are addressed by experts in the mental health field, and liaise with other support groups as well as with other service organisations.  Meetings are open to members and non-members.

We send out a monthly newsletter to members and to non-members who have added their names to our mailing list.

By sharing experiences, the group provides its members with advice and emotional support. This enables caregivers to seek help more confidently for their relatives.

Become a member:
In becoming a member of Cape Support For Mental Health, in addition to receiving a monthly newsletter, you gain access to our library of books on schizophrenia and mental health.
