Situated in the leafy suburb of Linden, just west of Johannesburg central, lies the home of 5th Place.

At 5th Place we aim to change the narrative about mental health and emotional wellbeing. We empower people to improve their mental wellness by advocating for increased awareness and understanding, and provide specialised psychological services, either online or in person. We have a holistic, five fold approach to our interventions.
