This pocket directory has been published as a complement to the South African Psychoanalytic Confederation’s (SAPC) Open Day – Communicating our Commitment to National Mental Health.
Held on 14th September 2012 in Johannesburg at Ububele, the home of The Ububele Educational and Psychotherapy Trust, this event is the start of a dialogue between the SAPC and the
Department of Health in order to mutually co-operate in the future of South African mental health.
This event is also an opportunity for the SAPC to cohere itself as a confederation – 47 different groups with over 550 members. In spite of its diversity theoretically, as well as its distinct and separate group identities, members are unified in wanting to think and action a way
into a healthy future for all South Africans.
This booklet, in parallel to the presentations and exhibits on the Open Day, showcases the rich and varied work of SAPC members and the impact and reach that psychoanalytic thinking can have
across all levels of mental health care. (See article on page 6) It has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible with all entries containing contact details for more information, and space
provided in the directory for additional notes and thoughts.
