Improvement in functionality of MHS Day Care Unit
In 2013, Qatar National Mental Health Strategy put forward a very ambitious plan for transforming Qatar’s mental health services into a community-based model of care with strong emphasis on quality principles and safety concepts. This started the transformation journey of ACMHS.
In order to fulfill our goal, two main domains were determined: To work closely with patients and their family and community to enhance mentally ill patient recovery, wellbeing, self-awareness and engagement within the society and assess the impact of this on patients, their families and the community.
Day care programs in mental health settings play an important role not only in the rehabilitation of mentally ill patients, but also as an alternative to inpatient admission.
To address safety concerns for patients due to the lack of a proper entrance attributed to the layout of the building, the Daycare Unit has undergone two phases of renovation.
