With over 450 million people suffering from mental illness globally, BasicNeeds strives to work with people with mental illness and epilepsy as they are some of the most marginalised people in the world. Since our inception, we have reached over half a million people around the world. However, there are still many more in urgent need of assistance.
For us to continue our work we depend on you. Your gift not only funds every aspect of our current work – community based treatment, livelihoods support, self-help groups – but also helps us to build the capacity of others to deliver high quality care and to reform mental health policies and practices.
You can also contribute by volunteering with us which will help us achieve our goal of reaching out to at least a million more people in the next five years.
