Our Projects

Community mental health projects

MHAT has teamed up with the Institute of Palliative Medicine in Calicut, the Malappuram Initiative in Community Psychiatry and various palliative care centres and institutions in the districts of Malappuram,Wayanad, Palakkad and Kozhikode. Most of these are part of the successful community palliative care movement in Kerala.

Weekly outpatient clinics have been functioning in parts of Malappuram, Wayanad and Kozhikode districts with the help of local partners. In the clinics in Wayanad, the focus is also on serving the tribal population.

The first community clinic to implement our model started functioning on December 3, 2008 at Pulikkal in Malappuram district. Since then, another 52 clinics have gone on-stream in the 7 districts of Malappuram, Wayanad, Palakkad, Thrissur, Kasaragod and Kozhikode.

By June 2017, nearly 4000 patients have been registered with the clinics; mostly people with chronic mental disorders. It is anticipated that most of these patients would require long term care with continuous input from MHAT and its local partners.

The 52 clinics are at:
