Our Biaber Project will help provide mental health services, in the form of Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), to Ethiopians in 6 hubs in Ethiopia, and from there, into the community primary care health clinics.
How does your innovation work?
In Ethiopia, there is limited understanding of mental health problems among the general population and, as a result, many people suffering from common mental disorders are undiagnosed and untreated. Screening for domestic partner violence and common mental disorders and treatments that are brief, safe, effective and affordable are desperately needed. Interpersonal Psychotherapy is a tested treatment that can be delivered by healthcare workers with little to no previous mental health experience.
