Psychology, Mental Health Care and the Future: Is Appropriate Transformation in a Future South Africa Possible?

Psychology, Mental Health Care and the Future: Is Appropriate Transformation in a Future South Africa Possible?

The last few years of South African psychology have seen increasing debate about the link between psychology, politics and apartheid. The debate has primarily revolved around whether one can practice psychology and avoid politics. The purpose of this paper is not to further engage in this debate but to look beyond it, and isolate those factors which may inhibit the transformation of psychology and mental health in a future post-apartheid South Africa, particularly if a policy of nationalisation is adopted.
