The Day Clinic

Are you swamped by hopeless feelings? Do you get agitated with anxiety that you can’t settle? Do the actions you take to get relief add to the problems you face? Perhaps you feel very alone, with thoughts and emotions that no one seems to understand…

Based in Johannesburg, The Day Clinic works with you to tackle these challenges; giving you intensive support to learn, practice and use strategies to understand and address your difficulties.

We offer day programmes for adults and young people with minimal disruption to everyday living.

You’ll be provided with new skills and support; gaining a sense of achievement that can only be found through facing and addressing your difficulties.
