The Advocacy department
The North Gauteng Mental Health Society Advocacy department was established in 2017. The sole
mandate of this department is to raise awareness about mental health disorders, provide trainings and
wellness to the companies, organizations and the community at large.
The department also gives support to the Social Work department in the absence of the chief social worker.
It further provides support to the two-special care centres on social problems they are faced with. Since the
introduction of this department the organization is now able to achieve its missions when it comes to
mental health related issues.
Furthermore the organization is now known to different government departments, private sectors,
communities, tertiary institutions and schools in and around Pretoria. There has been an increase in mental
health statistics as we are now able to report on a variety of activities performed during different
commemoration months. Our social media pages are now more active as there are a lot of activities to post
