Partnership Profile - Carter Center
These medications are distributed to hospitals, health centers, and clinics (public and private) throughout Liberia, where mental health clinicians, trained by the Carter Center, work to help people recover.
“Access to neuropsychiatric medication is a step in the efforts to bolster mental wellness in Liberians," said Carter Center CEO Ambassador Mary Ann Peters.
"We are grateful that this partnership with MAP International complements our work with the Liberian Ministry of Health to reduce suffering and increase the quality of life for those living with mental illnesses in Liberia,” Ambassador Peters said.
Working with the Liberian government and partners, The Carter Center has helped to create a corps of over 230 locally-trained and credentialed mental health clinicians now serving all 15 counties in the country.
“This represents a critical extension of our mission,” said MAP International President Steve Stirling. “We work best in partnership with others. The programs being carried out by the Ministry and the Carter Center will have a much greater impact for the people of Liberia because of MAP’s participation,” Mr. Stirling said.
