Contact details FOR those in need:

This section contains contact details of professionals that could assist people in need. This is for South Africa only, mostly in the Gauteng province, sorry.

Note, many of the Ex-Olympic champions go through depression after their great achievements!

Yes, they seem invincible, but can also experience Post-traumatic stress disorders, just like many people who were involved in a prolonged war. Even movie and sport stars experience life challenges, especially when retiring (when they move from “Hero” to almost “Zero”). Life challenges and mental challenges can be experienced by all, so DO NOT HOLD BACK, seek help below and do it NOW, as these institutes/people are available and ready, and THEY WANT TO HELP YOU, that is why they created these organizations!
