Missionvale Campus

The Community Psychology Centre on the Missionvale Campus is a satellite of the University Psychology Clinic [UCLIN] which resides in the Faculty of Health Sciences. It acts both as a professional training unit for postgraduate psychology students and a unit that provides broad based community psychological services in the form of psychological assessment procedures and therapeutic interventions.

Thus through its teaching and training, community service and research, the Centre aims towards the evolving of newer and more contextually relevant models of psychological assessment, counseling and psychotherapy.

The Center has three main functions:

  • Provides a facility dedicated to the education and training of postgraduate psychology students leading to professional registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
  • Caters for the dire need of mental health services and programmes in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan region by increasing the access and affordability of such services to surrounding communities
  • Form a scientific research hub for a variety theoretical and applied projects.
