Started in April 2012, the Shifa mental Health and Disability project aims to create a barrier free and supportive environment for people living with mental illness and/or disability. The project strives to achieve its goal through 4 channels:

1. Universal Prevention – Improved resilience health index for the community of Sadoli Kadim via universal prevention and promotion of mental health.
2. Selective Prevention- Community prepared and empowered towards care, support and build safe social space.
3. Indicative Prevention – Empowering communities to make professional help accessible to individual and families.
4. Collective action – promotion of collective action of the community to uphold the rights of community members affected by mental health and disability.

Currently, the project has moved in its third phase of implementation.
