We provide psychotherapy for child and adolescent mental and behavioral disorders, common mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions and substance use related disorders, self-harm and suicide and other significant mental health concerns and complaints.
At Oopenspace, we believe everyone has infinite potential and possibilities – and that no one should struggle alone. Our professionals provide a safe and therapeutic space – full of empathy, warmth, unconditional positive regard and acceptance. We engage our clients to speak openly confidentially about themselves - their lives, experiences and issues. We work with our clients to propel them out of difficult and challenging situations, identify their internal strengths and coping strategies and build valuable and lasting psychosocial support networks.
At Oopenspace, we believe no-one should struggle or suffer alone. Nobody should be ashamed, stigmatized, isolated or ostracized.
People who have mental illnesses and challenges state that one of their greatest challenges is stigma and discrimination from friends, family, neighbours, colleagues and strangers. We will persist until each person in need get psychosocial support.
We aim to influence attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health -so that they can get confidence, get help, restore functioning and live in dignity.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health challenge this year. They may not get help the much needed help because of the shame and silence around mental health and mental illness. Change someone’s life – Listen, Affirm, Refer and Support.
Opening up is not easy. If someone you know is acting different, ask. Sometimes they will say they are okay. Ask twice.
Let’s change conversations and dialogue about mental health.
