We provide psycho-social support, social and emotional learning opportunities, therapeutic counselling, support groups and resilience building workshops for over 32 000 learners, and their caregivers, at our 35 partner school communities in low income areas.  In 2023 we will partner with another 40 schools, this sees us expand into Gauteng and rural Eastern Cape.

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.
