MSF staff at mental health center speaking with a peatient
In Thailand, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) continues to provide mental healthcare to people affected by unrest in the southern provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat.

The aim of our project is to work with public hospitals, government service providers, and other NGOs to offer patients a holistic model of care, including counselling, medical assistance, and social support. In 2020, we continued our outreach programme of community-based engagement activities, particularly in Yala and Narathiwat provinces, where medical care is otherwise scarce.

Raising awareness of mental health issues remains the focus of our activities.

We work with communities to prevent violent incidents and build mechanisms to cope with them should they occur, by running psychoeducation sessions and psychological first-aid training in counselling centres, mosques, schools, and other venues in areas that have experienced numerous violent events.

MSF continues to share information and expertise on various aspects of mental health with local networks, groups, and both state and non-state entities, to strengthen their capacity and improve referral pathways to our facilities.
