Challenge

Mental health is a growing concern that calls for immense focus from all quarters. It is estimated that 1% of the population, almost 10 million people in the country suffer from some form of mental illness. State level figures report over 50 Lakh Persons with Mental Illness (PWMIs) and Mental Retardation in Karnataka who are being supported by less than 700 health care professionals, doctors and social workers. The focus of public health system is still on mortality rather than morbidity

Solution

To identify new PWMI and provide follow up for the existing PWMI to access Psychiatric treatment and continue medication. To capacitate the primary and secondary stakeholders through mental health training to bring about changes at the district and state level. To ensure psychological, social and economic independence among PWMI to lead a dignified life.

Long-Term Impact

Persons with Mental Illness stabilize; access treatment & medication; get back to their previous jobs/self-employment thereby included in the families and community.
