HIV Mental Health Research Unit (HIV MHU)

The HIV Mental Health Research Unit (HIV MHU) is located in the Division of Neuropsychiatry, Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health.

The Unit's platform of clinical service, teaching and research, extending to numerous hospitals and clinics in greater Cape Town, was established in response to the growing recognition of the burden of mental disorders in people living with HIV – including depressive, anxiety, substance abuse and neurocognitive disorders.

Our work is pioneering in the region, with our teaching and research programme supported by several large grant awards, and receives established international recognition.
