Cape Town



Are there any particular mental health issues that tend to crop up at post, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter blues)?

The weather and natural beauty of Cape Town are good for the soul and for mental health. That said, the extra vigilance required by Cape Town's high crime rate can get wearing after a while. A wide range of local mental health care professionals are available locally and, though I haven't personally made use of their services, are likely of a Western standard. - Oct 1, 2017
