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.
