WHO WE ARE
Sangath is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization committed to improving health across the lifespan by empowering existing community resources to provide appropriate physical, psychological and social therapies.
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.
