One of the youngest clients of CNMH is suffering from chronic mental health problem. It has been a struggle for the CNMH social workers to assist her to psychologists/ psychiatrists. Her mother who owns a small restaurant has a serious health condition. According to her doctor and medical reports, she needs heart surgery as soon as possible. The delay in her heart surgery is related to her economic status.
CNMH social worker has identified government provisions through which the cost of her surgery could be reduced by almost one third. It is however not easy to be eligible for it because it needs various government recommendations and certificates. Although this is not related to her mental health, CNMH believes that it will have a positive impact on the mental health of her daughter if her mother gets better.
CNMH is on a mission to help as many clients as possible to have access to Social Security Allowance (SSA) from Nepal Government. At the same time, many of the clients in the streets do not have proper citizenship certificates.
For the past few years, CNMH has been working towards getting a Social Security Identity Card from the government for many of the clients with chronic mental health problems.CNMH have been able to slowly and successfully manage to link clients and carers ( carers refers to the main person responsible for the day-to-day unpaid care of the family member that has a mental disorder) with the government's social support programs.
Few of the clients now have security and some independence. However, the challenges still remain.
