Central Gauteng Mental Health Society, formerly known as the Witwatersrand Mental Health Society, was born on 23 November 1919 as the Society for Mental Hygiene and Care of the Feebleminded, with statistics of 100 cases of mental deficiency recorded.
The Society managed to branch out into new activities such as an occupational centre for boys in Johannesburg in 1941 and a home for indigent women in 1942.
Over the years the organisation never ceased to agitate for more accommodation for the mentally disordered and defective in Government institutions and to urge the Government to provide accommodation for non-white defectives.
Central Gauteng Mental Health Society formally known as Witwatersrand Mental Health Society provides the following services: Disability, Health, Mental Health, Community Development, Empowerment, Advocacy, Skills Development, Human Rights, HIV/Aids and Mental Illness, Arts and Culture, Women and Children, Orphaned and Vulnerable Children.
