WHO ARE WE & WHAT DO WE DO?

​The Australia-Nepal Mental Health Network (ANMHN)

is a group of volunteer senior mental health professionals from Australia that support the endeavours being made in Nepal to improve the lives of people living with a mental illness.  

 

​The Australia-Nepal Mental Health Network (ANMHN)

offers expertise and collegial networks to improve skills and further build capacity of the amazing local Nepali mental health services. We do this by using our own experience and limited resources to help in ways that are sustainable and will add value to existing services.

We work with our Nepali colleagues in Kathmandu and in the region of Dhading in the villages of Maidi and Dhola.

 

ANMHN is partnered by colleagues in Nepal and auspiced by Rotary Australia World community Services (RAWCS)

 

At the ANMHN, we continually try to understand and incorporate into our work the wide cultural variations between our two countries. We come, therefore, with humility, enthusiasm and inquiring minds.

We learn  much from our colleagues in Nepal. It is an ongoing dialogue and exchange.

Raising funds for mental health services in Nepal 

With our colleagues , families and friends we raise small amounts of funds to assist a number of services in Nepal. The Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak and the Rotary Club of Blayney along with District 9700 are also very supportive. You can donate specifically to us, for instance, to help Chhahari a street-front service in Kathmandu, or to Dr Kunwar who is building services for young children with mental health problems or just generally. To sponsor us, click on 'donate' and follow the prompts. Friends also help out with donations of knitted garments.

Thank you to all who contributed through our fundraising film night on 13 September 2019. Email Robyn to hear about further activities.
