Mental Health A Step Ahead

By manas banerjee | Project Leader

Respected Donors 

Greetings from Chhattisgarh Agricon Samiti 

We have got your valuable support through Global Giving. We have started the awareness and baseline research with the rural community in this quarter. 

We have selected 2 districts (Bastar and Bilaspur) to start the community mental health program. Firstly, we have carried out baseline research in 5 villages of each district. In this process, we have organized many awareness programs like corner meetings, poster exhibitions, and social mapping. We have addressed many mental health issues and challenges. We have identified some high-risk clients. We have mapped support systems and institutions in the village level for mental health needs 

These activities are increasing our knowledge and capacity of community mental health issues. We are involving actively in the rural community

  Activity during the quarter (AUG 2019 to NOV 2019) 

During this quarter our team has participated in the 2nd phase of the training program “Programing for Inclusion of Person with psychological disabilities” held on 27 May 2019 to 3rd Jun 2019 in Pune Maharashtra. We have learned about the Art and play for wellbeing in development, Community Mobilization and Participation, Peer support and support counseling, Family counseling for communities. We have learned about client assessment tools like WHO-QoL, Nutrition assessment, family and social assessment and clinical assessment, etc. 

Presently we are assessing our 47 identify clients in both districts Bastar and Bilaspur. We have prepared an intervention plan for each client. We have started some interventions like peer support, art-based activities, and individual and family counseling. After the interventions, some clients likely come out from there mental stress. With time it will be more effective.  


Our First Achievement (about client A) 

As we shared in our last report, we had found a client “A” (for client privacy issue, we are not disclosing the identity of the client). Who was completely facing mental stress and phycological issue? 

We are providing here some peer support and individual counseling. Now she has almost come out from her socio-phycological issue. She is deciding to start a new life and get married again. Hope we will share the detail of her marriage in our next report.  

We expect that you will spread the word within your social reach about our work and initiative to help those people like our client “A”.
