Social Work Academic Elected of Cape Mental Health Vice-President

Social Work lecturer, Professor Johannes John-Langba, has been elected Vice-President of Cape Mental Health (CMH), the oldest community-based mental health organisation in South Africa.

CMH promotes mental health and the organisation’s various programmes and projects that help people to adjust to their disability, adapt to family and community life, and acquire coping skills they need to achieve their greatest level of independence.

‘This election means a lot to me personally and as a social worker, academic and mental health services researcher. I believe it is in recognition of my contribution to CMH as a board member and mental health ambassador and for my contribution to mental health promotion on the African continent for over a decade,’ said John-Langba, who was elected during the organisation’s 105th Annual General Meeting.
