Online therapy in East Rand

Online therapy in East Rand has been integrated into the academic curriculum. It is done online with a trained facilitator who is not of the same gender as the client. This helps reduce stigma and enables confidentiality which will help to maintain the privacy of the student.

The counselling sessions will be done in a safe environment where the patient can open up to a trained professional over their problems. The sessions are not long and require commitment from all parties involved, but it is worth it in order for students to receive the help they need. Online therapy allows students to schedule appointments according to their availability.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in East Rand

Statistics for mental health conditions in East Rand show that the incidence of depressive and anxiety disorders is less than 2%. Anxiety and depressive disorders: 10.8% and 4.5% respectively. Alcohol and substance abuse: 13.1% and 5.5% respectively.

In the psychiatric institutions, there are approximately 1000 mental health patients that have been diagnosed with a depressive or anxiety disorder and about 200 with an alcohol or substance abuse problem. There are many more who cannot be put into institutions because their illness is not severe enough for them to be registered as mentally ill by the Department of Social Development.

As if that is not enough, there are an additional 400 or more people that cannot be put into institutions because there is no space for them to occupy. This does not include the many who take their own lives each year without anyone’s knowledge.

It was this dire need to work with depressive and anxiety disorders, alcohol and substance abuse, and the apparent difficulty to get a proper diagnosis that prompted me to start my research.

It started as a query into the number of people that were being diagnosed with these disorders. The outcome was already known before I began my research – depressing and anxiety disorders have been found by many studies globally to be the most common mental health condition in the general population. The outcome of this research was that according to the South African Community Epidemiology Network on Drug Use (SACENDU) report, 9% of adults in SA suffer from such mental health conditions.
