Our planned activities in 2016

Mind to Mind Myanmar is committed to contributing to the better mental health care in Myanmar. In collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatrists Volunteer Scheme, we are going to Myanmar again, for the second time in 2016, to deliver our successful mental health training to the general practitioners, this time in the beautiful city of Taunggyi in the Shan State in Eastern Myanmar.

We are also providing a refresher training in Yangon and Mandalay to the previous trainees who completed the 4 days of mhGAP training in 2015 and earlier 2016.

The expenses directly related to educational activities such as the hiring of the training venue, printing of the high quality training manuals, audiovisual equipments and stationery are funded by Mind to Mind Myanmar. Please click on donate button to support our work. 

Half Marathon in the old city of Bagan, Myanmar

This year, during her trip to Myanmar in November, Nwe will participate in the Bagan Temple Marathon on Saturday 26th November. She will run half marathon (13.1 miles) to raise funds for the existing community mental health clinics led by the local psychiatrist colleagues in the suburban townships outside Yangon. These are the earliest examples of such service in a country where the mental health care has always been centralised in the cities. Most of these clinics are provided on a monthly basis and attended by more than a hundred patients at each site. Please donate through Nwe's JustGiving page to support these clinics.
