Western Cape MEC of Health Nomafrench Mbombo is launching programs in July to help address the growing number of mental health issues in South Africa.

The campaign focuses on prevention and early detection of mental illnesses.

Ministerial Spokesperson Colleen Smart, said in the Western Cape we have seen an increase on these cases and the majority of them is aggravated by the high level of substance abuse cases.

“This causes severe burden in our facilities and we need to obviously accommodate a large number of patients suffering from acute mental illnesses, and this is why the Western Cape government has priorities alcohol and substance abuse as a strategic goal going forward” Smart added.
