Message From Chairperson Desk
CMC-Nepal is a non-governmental organization which is working in the field of mental health and psychosocial counseling since the year 2003. Mental health is a global problem, more so in low and middle income countries. Poverty, unemployment and recent major earthquake in the affected districts are further adding the problem.
Stigma of mental disorders and epilepsy, lack of awareness regarding available treatment are further preventing the utilization of whatever services are available in this area. CMC-Nepal is continuously working in the field of mental health and psychosocial counseling in several districts of the country. Community mental health, psychosocial counseling, child mental health, school counselling training of psychosocial counselor and all levels of primary health care workers are some of our major field of work. Awareness raising and stigma reduction activities in the community and working with the families of mental disorders and epilepsies are other activities. Services are provided without discrimination, with special concern for those who are marginalized, oppressed or underserved.
Finally we would like to thank all our partners, friends, and well wishers for their continuous support due to which we are able to continue our programme.
Dr. Kapil Dev Upadhyaya
