mental health services in the southernmost provinces of Thailand
We work to provide mental health support to vulnerable communities in southern Thailand.

We are working in collaboration with both government and non-governmental organisations to provide counselling services for the most vulnerable sections of the community, especially women and orphans, in areas affected by unrest.

The psychological support includes individual and group counselling, psychosocial education and stress management.

Additional medical services such as physiotherapy and pain management are also offered.

Thailand Activities 2020

The aim of our project is to work with public hospitals, government service providers and other NGOs to offer patients a holistic model of care, including counselling, medical assistance and social support.

In 2020, we continued our outreach programme of community-based engagement activities, particularly in Yala and Narathiwat provinces, where medical care is otherwise scarce.  

Raising awareness of mental health issues remains the focus of our activities. We work with communities to prevent violent incidents and build mechanisms to cope with them should they occur, by running psychoeducation sessions and psychological first-aid training in counselling centres, mosques, schools and other venues in areas that have experienced numerous violent events.
MSF continues to share information and expertise on various aspects of mental health with local networks, groups and both state and non-state entities, to strengthen their capacity and improve referral pathways to our facilities.
