There are enormous challenges in developing a mental healthcare service that meets the needs of South Africans. Many of these challenges have been described in the lay press and in both local and international journals. In recognition of these challenges, the South African Society of Psychiatrists (SASOP) has expressed its support for formalising a national mental health policy, in a position statement released following a strategic workshop in 2012. The workshop was co-ordinated by members of its State Employed Special Interest Group (SESIG).
