Treatment cost for one patient for one year is approximately Rs.5000 per year. This includes the cost of screening, mental status examination, diagnosis, medication, recovery oriented psychosocial interventions as well as periodic reviews throughout the year. On the other hand if you’d like to support a clinic for one month that would be approximately Rs.10,000.  If you’d like to support by sharing the cost running a 5 clinics per month, the cost would be Rs. 50,000. And if you’d like to support the cost of running a clinic for an entire year, that would be Rs.100,000 per year.
