Summary

Our transformative mental health initiatives in Tanzania offer vital services to address the mental health needs of over 5,000 people. Through interpersonal counseling, empowering group talk therapy, relevant psychoeducation, and referrals, we offer comprehensive support. The project aims to bridge the mental health treatment gap, reduce stigma, and foster resilience in the community. It will empower people and create a stronger, more compassionate society that prioritizes mental well-being.

Challenge

Depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance use conditions are highly prevalent, accounting for a large burden of disease and disability globally. Nearly 1 in 10 people have a mental health disorder, but only 1% of the global health workforce provides mental health care. Mental and substance use conditions interfere, in substantial ways, with the ability of children to learn and the ability of adults to function in families, at work, and in society at large.

Solution

The project will help solve the problem of limited access to mental health care by providing mental health care and psychosocial support in under-resourced and marginalized communities. By increasing awareness, improving access to care, and offering comprehensive support enables individuals to function better in various aspects of life, promoting overall well-being and reducing the negative impact on families, workplaces, and society.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve mental health outcomes of 10,000 people in Tanzania and advocate for an integrated approach to mental health care. It will promote well-being and resilience in individuals and communities, improve access to evidence- and community-based mental health care, reduce stigma, and break intergenerational cycles. It will strengthen social support systems and community linkages to public healthcare pathways, enhance economic productivity, and reduce the burden on healthcare.
