What we do

We contribute to public health through path-breaking community-based research and intervention programs that strive to address the pressing mental health treatment gap within the country. We have pioneered a task-shifting strategy that incorporates relatively low-cost human resources, by empowering ordinary people and community health workers, to deliver mental healthcare with appropriate training and supervision from experts.
