Project Lead(s): Clare Pain
In Ethiopia, there is limited understanding of mental health problems among the general population and, as a result, many people suffering from common mental disorders are undiagnosed and untreated. Screening for domestic partner violence and common mental disorders and treatments that are brief, safe, effective and affordable are desperately needed. Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a tested treatment that can be delivered by healthcare providers and trained lay workers with little or no previous mental health experience. Our Biaber Project will help provide mental health services to Ethiopians in 6 hubs in Ethiopia and from there into the community primary care health clinics.
