Nosiphiwe Mvo - Head Health and Mental Care

As BOSASA’s National Head of Health and Mental Care, Nosiphiwe Mvo manages a nationwide team of mefdical practitioners. She is extensively involved in the training and coaching of our psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, professional nurses and assistant nurses. By developing standardised therapeutic programmes and incorporating a wide variety of assessment instruments, she has broken new ground in her field. Utilising the latest research and trends in treatment modalities, Nosiphiwe has made invaluable contributions to the occupational therapy services of our BOSASA Youth Centres.
Nosiphiwe graduated in 1999 from the University of Western Cape with a degree in Vocational Rehabilitation, a specialization she then further refined at the University of Pretoria. Her training as an occupational therapist began from day one of her academic career, where she learned from practical exposure to cases at clinics, hospitals, in the communities, as well as in crèches and schools. But it was the five years spent at Sterkfontein Hostpital where Nosi really cut her teeth. There, she worked in forensics, medical psychiatric units and treated adolescents with psychiatric conditions.

Joining BOSASA in 2004 as an occupational therapist, the quality of her work and commitment soon saw Nosiphiwe promoted to a senior position, which she occupied for a long time, before becoming the assistant manager in Khayalethu Youth Centre. She went on to gain additional experience and qualifications as a professional head of elite services at Sandrigham Hospital. There, she practiced alongside other specialists such as psychologists, physiotherapists, and pharmacists.

It was not long after returning to BOSASA as a senior occupational therapist that Nosiphiwe was promoted to National Co-ordinator. The roles required her to research and design national programmes, as well as oversee the efficacy of BOSASA’s team of occupational therapists. Her outstanding efforts in this role led her to take up the position she holds today as Head of Health and Mental Care.

Nosiphiwe considers being offered her position of leadership an honour and a highlight in her career. She takes the utmost pride in her role and is always seeking ways to better both her own knowledge and the strength of the organisation. To that end, she is currently enrolled with University of Liverpool for MBA in Business Leadership, which she hopes will sharpen her management expertise and drive BOSASA’s continually evolving youth care programmes.

Above all, her greatest achievement lies in the sense of community and spiritual connection she has helped foster in the organisation. Nosi Mvo likes to be involved in bringing people together: whether it is for a Wednesday morning prayer, or for monthly meetings that gather together members from the whole community. She believes that this shared passion has had a tremendous impact on the success of the company and the solidarity of its employees. It is her hope that, together with BOSASA, she can play a role in knitting together the individuals, families and communities that make up South Africa.
