UCT has made a toll-free counselling line available to its employees through the Organisational Health and Wellness office in the Human Resources Department.
Employees and their immediate family members (spouses and minor children) can access short-term counselling through either the on-site counsellor or via the Independent Counselling and Advisory Service (ICAS), an external service that offers up to four sessions per year.
The toll-free number is 0801 113 945. Staff can also dial *134*905# for a call back.
Organisational Health also offers staff other support, including a once-off emotional impact session that can be arranged for groups with ICAS, or a group trauma debriefing or emotional impact session facilitated by Organisational Health. Both sessions accept a maximum of 15 people per group.
