Mental Health Care

Mental Health Care



The impacts of poverty and conflict can affect mental wellbeing. A network of care and support helps people as they navigate their mental health journey. This gift connects people with mental illness and their families with trained support workers and access to psychiatric services.

How your gift helps

Choosing this gift means you’re contributing to sustainable and long-term development projects run by Tearfund’s partners.

Poverty and conflict can compound mental illness and psychological distress, but a network of care and support can help people as they navigate their mental health journey.

Tearfund’s partner Medair incorporates mental health and psychosocial support into its health projects in Somalia.

Halima* says: “I fled the war in 2017; I lost everything and left some of my belongings. We have passed a lot of sad situations in life and if we don’t talk about it, everything sad that happens remains in our heart and causes stress and mental illness. We are very grateful to Medair and also the community volunteers who provide us with education messages. It will not bring our life back to normal but at least we can cope with the current situation.”
