What We Do

We adopt a holistic approach to community mental health and wellness appreciating that addressing mental wellbeing and illness goes beyond psychiatric facilities, given that mental wellbeing and illness are not simply health issues, but have social and economic causes and effects.

We support access to preventive and restorative mental health services

Our interventions support and promote early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illnesses, while at the same time promoting resilience and wellbeing in the communities we work. We also actively engage in initiatives that address stigma associated with mental health.

This has helped generate evidence-based insights that have helped to catalyse change.
