We would like to appeal you to be part with us. Our work depend on your encouragement and support.
KOSHISH is advocating for the inclusion of mental health into the primary health care system of the country and for the mainstreaming of psychosocial disability in the disability momentum. Due to unclear policies, discriminatory laws and stigma against mental health problems this issue has not been able to move ahead as it had to. We are striving to achieve our goal of protecting dignity of persons living with psychosocial disability. Mental health is among least discussed issues in Nepal. Majority of persons having mental health problem go untreated, uncared, and often unnoticed. As a humanitarian organization we are making the efforts to be the part of suffering of our fellow brothers and sisters with mental illness. We embrace them and restore their dignity through rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration in their own family/community. But we cannot do it alone.
