A Place of Healing

Ekupholeni Mental Health and Trauma Centre (ZA) A Project of E | KBFUS Funds

Heal. Recover. Empower.

Ekupholeni Mental Health and Trauma Centre is a place of healing which strives to reach individuals, families, groups and communities in distress and to engage them in a holistic process of healing, recovery and empowerment.

Ekupholeni Mental Health and Trauma Centre is a registered non-governmental organisation (NPO 035-007) that provides psychosocial counseling to victims of trauma. We operate within the Katorus area, a semi-formal settlement 25 kilometers outside Johannesburg, and houses a community of 2.5 million people. The region consists of former Black locations and sprawling informal settlements, including Katlehong, Vosloorus, Tokoza, Zonkezizwe, Palm Ridge, Phola Park, and Tsietsie, amongst others. We operate out of "zozos" and containers at nine different locations which include public clinics and a hospital.
