City Desired

Last year, as part of the African Centre for Cities’ City Desired project I wrote an in-depth profile about Dr John Parker, a psychiatrist based at Lentegeur Hospital. This psychiatric hospital in Mitchells Plain, on the Cape Flats, is at the front line of treating methamphetamine-related psychosis in Cape Town’s poorer communities. If you’re up for a long-read that address issues of mental health, drug abuse, social deprivation, hope and recovery, my piece is available online and will also be out in Cityscapes magazine soon.Screen shot 2015-01-10 at 2.33.20 PMPhoto: Sydelle Willow Smith.
