Social Worker Internship Opportunity at CGMHS 2017

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.

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.

The organization has been playing an integral part in providing direct services to children, families, and communities in distress. The Society operates in the Greater Johannesburg area and we have offices in Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni, and Soweto.

Our beneficiaries include children who have been exposed to abuse sexually, physically and emotionally, abandoned, neglected, missing or lost, including those who are vulnerable, orphans and those affected/infected by HIV/Aids.
