Background of the project:
Doctors without Borders Thailand (DWBT) has been active in the Deep South of Thailand over the last 12 months, conducting a series of Psychological First Aid trainings in all the 4 provinces with an aim to better our understanding of the situation in the area, raise awareness about DWBT & our neutrality, and to develop links with existing stakeholders including local NGOs and the Thai Department of Mental Health.

DWBT is starting a project to primarily provide mental health services for victims of conflict, including basic medical and physiotherapy services and an appropriate system of referral where needed. The project is expected to be based in Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat. DWBT will work to strengthen existing mental health system and to build local capacity through trainings and the provision of mental health services primarily focusing on women and children affected by the conflict. DWBT is a non political, non religious medical organisation and does not discriminate based on religion, race, political affiliation or sex.
