At Jaya, in addition to bringing mental health care to remote corners of South Asia, we also train local communities in basic, but at times life saving mental health care skills. This week, Sailesh and Sagoon – our finest health educators – are training Health Assistants from five different hill-based health posts on how to respond to mental health crisis in rural settings. Following the World Health Organisation’s latest recommendations, our staff are sharing skills on a variety of topics, from how to reduce the risk of a young man committing suicide to offering psychosocial support to a woman victim of domestic violence. There is so much more to share, so much work to do. Thank you for following our work, and drop us a line if you’d like to help us reaching out to more communities in Asia!
