We provide psycho-social support, social and emotional learning opportunities, therapeutic counselling, support groups and resilience building workshops for over 30 000 learners, 3 000 educators and 17 000 parents in our 31 partner school communities in poor communities (35 by end of 2022).

We work together to destigmatise mental health issues, destigmatise help seeking behaviour and enhance mental health literacy.

Our Impact

Community Keepers is concerned about the mental health of young people and seeks to build a culture of wellbeing by

  • planting therapeutic counselling services, on-site, at schools in marginalised areas;
  • offering professional therapy in-person or remote access via technology;
  • hosting resilience building workshops;
  • creating relevant content and sharing it freely through an online library;
  • initiating and participating in research;
  • collaborating to extend our impact
  • and lobbying for change.

Our child-friendly consulting rooms (and digital alternative) provide a safe space for professional intervention:
- Assessment & Diagnosis
- Individual Counselling
- Psychotherapy
- Trauma Debriefing
- Crisis Intervention

Innovation and impact go hand in hand, and we continually research, develop and implement new services with the aim of reaching more people and meeting each child wherever they are in their journey.

In group sessions, learners have the opportunity to plan and self-direct their journeys to well-being through motivation, self-efficacy and enhanced resilience.
In supportive parent workshops and educator professional development sessions, we share ideas and practical tools on how to manage their own anxieties and create enabling and motivating environments.
