Gateway House Psychiatric Residence 

Set in the suburb of Waverley, Johannesburg, Gateway House is a Therapeutic Community for adults diagnosed with "Schizophrenia" or "Bipolar Disorder."

Dr Pieter Grobbelaar founded  Gateway House with the aim of providing an alternative to chronic  hospitalization for people with chronic mental illness. Gateway strives to provide a home environment in which residents can live as independently as possible with the necessary support to meet their basic living needs. We provide a range of services to help our residents live in the community, and provide training in independent living skills. While the aim is always towards integrating back into the community, Gateway also serves as a permanent home for those who need supported living. Although levels of structure  and supervision vary from person to person, our residential programs  have formal and specific rules, requiring residents to be involved in a  treatment program during  weekdays.

At Gateway House, structure and supervision is provided, in  a small non-institutional residential environment by a  multi-disciplinary team, consisting of: a psychiatrist, psychologist, psychiatric nurses, case-managers and facilitators, and dedicated  care-workers. Residents receive psycho-pharmacological treatment and other psychotherapeutic interventions, and are encouraged to play an  active role in the operation of the household, including meal  preparation.
