Its a major advantage if the person realizes that they need help. Depending on their circumstances, they could consult a private psychiatrist for assessment and treatment advice, or check their large local state hospital, or the Dept of Psychiary at UCT or Stellenbosch. As in all psych problems, the priority is to see a suitable specialist who can do a full assessment and clarify the precise nature of the problem. Only with a proper diagnosis can one plan effective treatment, and there are several possible causes and ways to manage the situation you describe.
