A Global Partner in Organised Psychology

PsySSA was formed in January 1994, uniting the various bodies that existed until then. PsySSA was structured as a transformed entity to deal with the fast-changing dispensation and speaks authoritatively on behalf of the discipline on matters concerning the mental health and psychosocial well-being of all South Africans. PsySSA has since its inception been dedicated to making a significant contribution to solving the pressing human development problems in South Africa.

PsySSA Supports The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children Campaign.

The Year of Charlotte Mannya Maxeke. Moving from awareness to accountability.

As PsySSA we believe that it is time that we actively promote accountability and stop this national address.

We, as South Africans, can put an end to GBV by being activists against GBV in your homes, communities, work and positions.
