We conduct several free camps at various small towns and villages in Guntur and surrounding districts with a view to raise awareness of mental health disorders in general public. We carry out free screening assessments and provide brief interventions. We also provide free medication during these camps.
Sometimes we participate with other specialties in large camps.
In addition to this we also address group of doctors who work at primary health care centres in Guntur district. These camps help doctors to train in relaxation techniques, preventing and managing work related stress, improving interpersonal communication and time management.
With the help of donors, we started a programme to distribute free copies of booklet with information on symptoms of various mental disorders to raise awareness in the community. The aim is to make sure every home in Guntur receives this booklet for free.
