Challenge

The project providing MHPSS programme in Makawanpur has ended on February 15, 2018. Many mental patients supported by project still need follow up with counselor. These patients should not be left apart without the completion of treatment. Similarly, the need of training is essential to address increased demand as identification and referral of the mental health cases are increasing in the community which resulted in the increased patient flow in the health post .

Solution

To address the increasing demand and fulfill the service gap in the community; the services providers still need training. The Mhgap training to the health worker that has been planned will enable them to deliver the Mental health and Psycho social support ( MHPSS) and counseling session more effectively and confidently. The training will also enable these health workers to prescribe the medicine to the mental health clients and address seeking and reaching mechanism of services in community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will strengthen the health service delivery by building the capacity of health workers which will increase their skills and knowledge to be able to response the need in the community beyond any project period. In the long run this will help in reduction of mental health cases in the communities.
