Thandanani is a centre providing mental health care in one of the outskirts of the metropolis of Johannesburg. The centre offers patients a structured, supporting environment and helps them to live as independently as possible. The patients learn, next to practical domestic skills, social skills too, so that they are able to reintegrate in society. Furthermore, the centre raises awareness amongst the local population, because in South Africa psychiatric patients are still heavily stigmatised. Approximatley fifty-five patients are accommodated in the centre on a residential basis; ten others access the facility only during the day.
