“We believe in looking forwards and not backwards – living in the past does not serve anyone –
you need to build on what you have today,” - Yolandé, MD of Papillon
Since our launch in 2013, Papillon has had a 70% success rate in the total reintegration of clients. This figure encompasses clients that have moved from just-out-of-hospital into a structured work environment and also independent/sometimes assisted-living clients.
Our treatment philosophy emphasises: Assessment, individual treatment plans and interventions, and then reintegration planning and the execution thereof - in a period of three to twelve months, depending on the client. We work off a five-step treatment programme developed by McLean Hospital.
At the core of all our endeavours is the belief that the individual can fully recover if she/he has the will to. This is based on the life experience of Yolandé Geyser, the MD of Papillon. Yolandé herself suffers from a psychiatric disorder and is an activist for this audience.
