It’s Time to Renew or Join SADAG’s Professional Membership
With the world being forced to adapt during trying times, SADAG wants to ensure that there are more ways that you can make a difference in mental health across South Africa. Being or becoming a SADAG Professional Member is now possible in several ways:
|Option 1 – Pro-bono Sessions for Two Patients a Year|
In place of a membership fee, you now have the option to be a Member by making a donation of pro-bono sessions for two patients a year. It’s no secret that countless people in South Africa are in desperate need of mental health services but are unable to access them due to lack of finances or governmental resources. By offering three pre-bono sessions to two patients a year, you will be making a massive difference in someone’s life. In return, we will add you to the official SADAG referral guide where everyday thousands of callers are referred to mental health professionals just like yourself.
Your pro-bono offering is at your discretion – please inform us of how you wish to take on your two patients a year and how you prefer to see them (online or face-to-face). We will then be in touch with you to make the relevant bookings.

|Option 2 – Annual Membership Fee
If donating pro-bono sessions is not an option for you, you may choose to donate R500 as a fee for your annual membership instead. Your donation matters enormously to us – without your support, we wouldn’t be able to help countless people a day who urgently need mental health support, recommendations, and referrals.
