Mental Health Education
This seeks to outline the key causes of mental illness that most people turn a blind eye to ,irrespective of the adverse and ripple effects it has on nation building
The outreach program involves providing personal care(personal hygiene, clothing, feeding and shelter) and medical support to persons with mental health needs or other vulnerabilities neglected on the streets.
Community Mental Health Support
This Program is carefully designed to assist persons living with mental illness in the various communities. With a team of health professionals, dedicated and committed volunteers, persons with mental health needs are assessed before appropriate medical steps/care plan are implemented.
Working with our partners, MEMHREP establishes rehabilitation centers to accomodate and treat people with mental health needs, and provide resettlement plan (vocational training) before reintegration.
This program works with volunteers and partner agencies using modern technology to produce food crops in order to feed our service users at a reasonable cost. The program also generates revenue from the sale of some farm produce to support service users. It also provides skills for our recovered service users who wish to engage in farming
“FEE” (Feed, Educate and Employ) Program is a gradual and systematic approach to reducing mental illness in communities where drugs and alcohol intake are abused and hence, needs intensive and consistent approach to achieve maximum results.
The work of MEMHREP is a unique one because it is the only organization seeking the welfare of persons neglected by family and societies due to their mental health conditions. This noble cause,should be complimented by the moral and financial support of government,public and private institutions.
I especially love MEMHREP's FEE(Feed,Educate and Employ) program.With this initiative, they visit persons leaving with mental health needs on the street. They are fed, groomed, clothed, rehabilitated and later put to work. Their prompt response is second to none,therefore all should rally and support the wonderful work they render.
I am a resident of Akokoamong in the Kwabre district of the Ashanti region of Ghana. I was diagnosed with Depression about 8 years ago. The intervention of MEMHREP led to my rescue through series of treatment and monitored me till I was whole. After my rehabilitation, I was employed in their organization as an office assistant.I'm grateful to MEMHREP for coming to my aid.
It’s a shame how mental health is given little attention but it’s one of the most important aspects of health. Kudos to MEMREP for making mental health a priority and helping people understand their mental health needs as well as helping them manage it. I’m proud to be volunteering to this worthy course. #DontLetThemSufferInSilence
