Mental Health Beyond Facilities (mhBeF)
In September 2012, Liberia was awarded a prestigious Grand Challenges Canada grant as part of a three-country project entitled “Mental Health Beyond Facilities” Project (mhBeF) led by Makerere University School of Public Health and the Carter Center Liberia Mental health Program as a sub-grantee. The three-year initiative is being implemented in Liberia, Uganda, and Nepal. In Liberia, it involves the Carter Center Mental Health Program, the JFK/ E.S. Grant Mental Health Hospital, the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare, and the Liberia Center on Outcomes Research in Mental Health (LiCORMH).
The Mental Health Beyond Facilities (mhBeF) project is intended to develop an evidence-based Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services (CCMHS) package for Persons With Severe Mental Disorders and Epilepsy (PWSMDE) in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LAMIC). mhBeF through the CCMHS will reduce the treatment gap between need and interventions, promote individual and family livelihood, and reduce stigma while enhancing effective psychosocial functioning of PWSMDE and their families.
