Development of Community Resources for promoting Mental Health Care in the North Eastern Region
The project ‘Development of Community Resources for promoting Mental Health Care in the North Eastern Region’ supported by North East Network, Guwahati was carried out during the period December’2006 to November’2007. Under this project we have developed a training manual –‘Working with mental health in the Community’, a resource book to help Care-Givers other than mental health professionals in providing services to persons with mental illness. Pamphlets and posters in five languages viz. English, Assamese, Bodo, Bengali and Khasi have been developed to create awareness.

Under this project six organizations – the ant (Bongaigaon), SATRA (Sipajhar), Prerona (Jorhat) and Deshabandhu Club (Silchar), all from Assam; Bethany Society (Shillong), Meghalaya and Swabalamban (Agartala), Tripura are being provided training and other support under the project to initiate service facilities for rehabilitation of persons with mental illness.

This initiative has resulted in the creation of Mental Health Interventions in six areas of three States of the NE region, where there were no such activity at the community level earlier. The training modules and resource material developed will help in reaching out to new geographical areas in the future.

Salaam Baalak Trust - Delhi

Mental health Programme
Salaam Balaak Trust has been addressing the needs and problems of street and working children belonging to different age groups and diverse backgrounds. But over the years it was realized that, apart from addressing the physical, educational and material needs of these children, efforts should also be made to address the mental health needs and problems faced by these children as a consequence of the diverse backgrounds and more often than not traumatic experiences that they have to undergo. Apart from this, it was also felt necessary to address the needs of growing children and adolescents. Keeping this in mind the Mental Health Programme was set up in February 2003. It started with a core group of 4 members, headed by Dr Amit Sen, (MD- Psychiatry, MRC Psych, London; Specialist, training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, UK). The Mental Health Programme encompasses a Preventive Programme that works through the formation of groups and the early identification of cases in order to help the children while going through the transition or stressful phases. This Programme also attempts at training and supervising the staff at Salaam Baalak Trust and its various centers to enhance their counseling skills and mental health education in order to enable them to identify cases, refer them, intervene in a suitable approach and then document those cases in turn facilitating the growth and development of the children through specialized and individualized care to each and every child.

Individual counseling and group sessions
The children get a friend to listen to and help them deal with their dilemmas through a professional full time counselor. It caters to their lost need of being heard or appreciated. The counselor takes care of individual case studies and conducts interesting group activities with the children. It is one of the prime components of the Organization to understand a child’s mind and address every neglected corner of the child.
