Health Minister Launches Mental Health Services Guide

HE Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, Minister of Public Health, formally launched Qatar’s first Guide to Mental Health Services during the eighth Qatar International Psychiatry and Mental Health Conference recently.

The guide has been developed by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), Sidra Medicine and Naufar with the aim of making it easier for people to access mental health services in Qatar and helping them choose the right service for their needs.

HE Dr. Al Kuwari said Qatar’s healthcare sector has undergone enormous growth throughout this decade and the expansion of mental health services has been an important part of this transformation.

Added Qatar’s health system now offers a wide range of mental health services and it is vitally important that people understand how to access these services and can choose the right service for their individual needs.
