Samutthana in collaboration with the Ministry of Health staff assigned to Mullaitivu district hospital carried out ‘mobile mental health clinics’ in peripheral areas of Mullaitivu. The two-month project aimed at fulfilling a hindered community need that will contribute to the improvement of the mental health services in the district. The project commenced on the 15th of October and was completed on the 14th of December 2018, focusing on reaching out to the community members who were unable to access appropriate mental health services due to shortcomings in basic transportation within these peripheral areas and insufficient number of trained staff available in the district. Community support officers CSOs and staff of the Ministry of Health attached to the Mental Health Unit (MOMH) facilitated the initial workshop and subsequently the patients who required follow up was directed to the Doctors at the clinics in their respective villages. The execution of activities were overseen and managed by Samutthana staff attached to the Kilinochchi office whilst implementation of the total number of ‘mobile mental health clinics’ were carried out by MOMH and CSOs of Mullaitivu district.
