What began as a succession of ideas, images, ambition and a strongly desired goal back in 2010, soon became a reality in 2015 when the first patient was welcomed and admitted on the 31st of August 2015 at CARELINE CLINIC PRIVATE PSYCHIATRY HOSPITAL.
According to South African Statistics:
- Between 1% and 31% of the South African population are likely to suffer from a mental health problem that is severe enough to require hospitalisation
- One in five South Africans are significantly affected by a mental health disorder
- Nearly 20% of high school students think about fatally harming themselves every year
