But mental health care isn't available
in much of the world. We can change that.
Developing nations may have only a few mental health professionals, and these have overflowing caseloads. Stigma, fear, and misunderstanding keep people from seeking help. This suffering could be prevented!
We equip informal service providers such as medical staff, social workers, and religious leaders with basic mental health and counseling skills. They learn to recognize and respond to mental health needs, as well as when to refer.
Trained informal providers make care available to more people at less cost. With increased knowledge, understanding, & acceptance, people can talk about their challenges. Getting better care faster means short-term interventions can have great positive impact.
Your donations provide mental heath training for church and community workers in the developing world.
