OUR COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS
CAMP Dausa, Rajasthan
This program successfully showcases all components of our vision, notably our close collaboration with the Department of Education, and the District hospital. Launched three years ago, it has been consistently evaluated and appreciated by the supporting organisations, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the National Mental Health programme, Jaipur. A unique feature of this region is the Mehendipur Balaji temple, well known as a centre for faith healing for persons with mental illness. Our interventions are designed to be sensitive to such local beliefs and practices.
Mansik Soundarya Program, Mirzapur and Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh
This seven-year-old program has been delivering mental health care integrated with the primary health program of our partner organization, Rama Krishna Mission Home of Service, Varanasi. This partnership has leveraged their reach as primary care providers in the remote regions of eastern U.P. to deliver mental health care to communities who had no access to these services. The emphasis on integrated care and sustainability and its unique model of telepsychiatry are amongst its many highlights.
CAMP Kumaon, Almora, Uttarakhand
This program provides mental health services in collaboration with the CMO, Almora in the remote interiors of the hill state of Uttarakhand. Currently working at the block level and at the village level for the last one year, this is a completely local community-driven project. It broadens the scope of positive mental health by also focusing on livelihoods and general health. Its location right in the midst of the communities it serves ensures the last mile connectivity in the delivery of services.
