Mental Health

Our integrated mental healthcare model includes primary care providers, on-site psychosocial counselors (PSC) and a remote psychiatrist. In addition to facility-based mental healthcare, trained Community Health Workers visit patients in their homes, to ensure medical adherence.

Our model is key to early detection of psychiatric illnesses and reduction of stigma around mental health. Patients across our service areas receive holistic care at the facility - mental care, physical care as well as medicine. Our program is also consistent with Nepal’s national Mental Health Policy that states the need to integrate mental health care into primary healthcare package and our integrated care model is the most advanced model for delivering comprehensive mental healthcare in low-resourced areas around the globe. Currently we provide mental health through collaborative care model in our service areas in Achham and Dolakha.
