20 October 2016: UCT toll-free counselling service for staff

The University, through the Organisational Health and Wellness office in the Human Resources Department, now offers support for its staff members through access to a toll-free telephonic counselling service.

In the current service model staff make an appointment with the Organisational Health and Wellness office for an initial consultation and to determine what the best course of action and relevant referral would be. Given the current situation at the University where staff need access to assistance and may not be able to contact Organisational Health, a toll-free telephonic counselling service has been made available to all staff.

UCT's toll-free number is: 0801 113 945 and employees can also send us a USSD code *134*905# for us to call them back.

Learn more about the UCT Employee Health and Wellbeing Programme and toll-free counselling service.

  • a Group Trauma Debriefing, or Emotional Impact session that can be facilitated by Org Health – maximum 15 per group
