How to Use the Map

The map shows mental healthcare professionals based in the Mother City (at the moment, we only have a map for Cape Town). Click on each marker to find out more about the practitioner at that location.

While all practitioners speak English, you can also find out what other languages they speak. You’ll see what kinds of patients they see (for example, adults or children) and whether they work with medical aid. And then you can click on their website or Psychology Today profile to learn more about the healthcare professional.
